UW-Eau Claire Women's Chorus
to Perform Fall Concert Nov. 19

RELEASED: Nov. 14, 2007

EAU CLAIRE — The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Women's Chorus will present its fall concert at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 19, in Gantner Concert Hall of the Haas Fine Arts Center.

The Women's Chorus, directed by Robert Mondlock, lecturer of music, will open with Alan Koepke's "Dance on My Heart." The ensemble's next selections will be J.S. Bach's "Aria" and Brant Adams' "Exultate justi in Domino," featuring solos by freshmen sopranos Margarete Martin, Fort Atkinson, and Stephanie Kass, Cedarburg.

The first set of selections concludes with "Ton The'" by Jeanne and Robert Gilmore.
