WSU Concert Chorale & Women's Choir

Event Date:Thursday, October 25, 2012
Event Time:7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Location: Wiedemann Hall

Join the WSU Concert Chorale and Women's Glee Club in an evening of inspiring choral music!

Women's Glee Club performs an eclectic mix of selections where different cultures and time periods intermingle with classics such as Felix Mendelssohn's "Lift Thine Eyes" and Antonio Vivaldi's "Laudamus Te" mix with contemporary American composer Jocelyn Hagen's "I Started Out Singing." Music from folk traditions is explored through Stephen Hatfield's unique collection of Inuit chants and Lead Belly's "Bring Me Little Water, Sylvie," in an arrangement by Moira Smiley.

Concert Chorale's program, "The Ecstasy and the Agony" takes the listener on a journey into and out of grief. Alice Parker's famous arrangement of the old American hymn tune, "Hark, I Hear the Harps Eternal" invites each of us to join the eternal song. Johannes Brahms' iconic "O Schöne Nacht" and Morten Lauridsen's evocative "Sure On This Shining Night" explore the beauty of nature from opposite states of mind, while Thomas Tomkin's stunning "When David Heard" wallows in the depths of grief. Estonian composer Arvo Pärt's "Bogoróditse Djévo" offers up a hopeful prayer. Finally, light transcends darkness through Dolly Parton's "Light of a Clear Blue Morning" and Keith McCuthen's arrangement of "Amazing Grace."
