The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claires Symphonic Choir will perform five selections by J.S. Bach for its fall concert, A Celebration of Bach 2000, at 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 19, in Gantner Concert Hall of the Haas Fine Arts Center.
This year is the 250th anniversary of the death of J.S. Bach, or as the international musical community calls it: Bach 2000, said Stephen Rosolack, conductor of the choir, explaining that is why he chose the repertoire for the concert.
The Symphonic Choir and University Symphony Orchestra will open the concert with Bachs Advent Cantata 61, and it will be followed by Toccata and Fugue in D-minor. Paul Kosower, organist, will perform.
The Magnificat in D will be performed next, followed by the Passacaglia and Fugue in C-minor, which Kosower will perform. The concert will conclude with a chorale from Part One of Bachs Christmas Oratorio.
In addition to Kosower, four other faculty members will be featured as soloists: Karen Brookens, soprano; Kathryn Proctor Duax, contralto; Daniel Newman, tenor; and Robert Knight, baritone.
Tickets, available at the University Service Center, (715) 836-3727, are $4.75 for adults; $3.75 for those age 62 and older, children 17 and younger, and faculty and staff with a university ID; or $1.25 for students with a university ID.
