UW-Eau Claire Women's Chorus
To Perform April 4
MAILED: March 26, 2002
EAU CLAIRE — The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Women's Chorus and a cappella group Girls Night Out will perform at 7:30 p.m. April 4 in Gantner Concert Hall of the Haas Fine Arts Center.
The Women's Chorus will perform works representing a variety of musical styles. The concert will begin with "Star Spangled Banner," the United States National Anthem inspired by the flag that flew over Fort McHenry during the Revolutionary War. Other works include Thomas Morley's "Now is the Month of Maying" and Brant Adam's "Exultate Justi in Domino."
The a cappella group Girls Night Out will perform three songs, including "Kissing You," arranged by Janine Brinkman, a senior from New Hope, Minn.
Girls Night Out was founded in 1995 by six women who wanted to sing but couldn't fit choir into their schedules. Now a five-woman group, it performs for university and community-sponsored events. The group has released one CD.
The Women's Chorus will continue the concert with "The Rhythm of Life" by Cy Coleman, "No Mirrors" by Ysaye M. Barnwell, and "Sun and Moon" from the musical "Miss Saigon" by Claude Michel Schönberg, arranged by Tom Anderson.
The Women's Chorus, which specializes in the study and performance of music written for treble ensembles, is comprised of students from various academic disciplines. Conductors include Alan Rieck, assistant professor of music and theatre arts; Gary Schwartzhoff, associate professor of music and theatre arts; and Sarah Daly, a senior music major from Whitefish Bay.
Tickets, available at the University Service Center, (715) 836-3727 or 1-800-949-UWEC, are $3.75 for the general public; $2.75 for those 62 and older and children 17 and younger; and free for faculty, staff and students with a university ID.
