To Perform Nov. 14
MAILED: Nov. 3, 1999|
The University of Wisconsin-Eau Concert Choir will perform at 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 14, in Gantner Concert Hall of the Haas Fine Arts Center.
Under the direction of associate professor of music Dr. Gary Schwartzhoff, the Concert Choir will open its program with J.S. Bach's "Fürchte dich nicht," which will feature professors of music Ivar Lunde on oboe and Nanette Lunde on harpsichord.
"The Concert Choir has performed three of the other Bach motets in the past and plans on performing his additional two motets in the years to come," Schwartzhoff said.
Following the Bach motet will be Randall Thompson's "Ye Were Sometimes Darkness" from "Requiem."
The second portion of the program consists of many classical works, which are well known in the area of choral music, he said. Concert Choir will perform "Pater Noster" by Jacob Handl and Knut Nysted's "Kyrie" from "A Thanksgiving Mass," featuring senior baritone Adam Breininger, Fort Wayne, Ind.
Impromptu, a six-member Concert Choir a cappella group, will perform during the third set of the program. Schwartzhoff said Impromptu performed last year at the 25th Annual Viennese Ball as a featured ensemble.
To finish the performance, the choir will perform a Londonderry air, "Danny Boy," and "Deep River," an African American folk song, along with several other more lighthearted pieces.
Tickets, available at the University Service Center (715) 836-3727, are $4.75 for adults, $3.75 for seniors, children 17 and under and faculty/staff with university ID or $1.25 for students with university ID.
