The Wichita State University Summer Choir presents "A French Connection" at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, June 27, in Wiedemann Hall. The program includes a variety of music that is not sung in French, but has a connection to that country.
Tickets are $7 for adults and $3 for students, with discounts available. Call 316-978-3233 or go to www.wichita.edu/fineartsboxoffice.
The program includes the Requiem by composer Gabrielle Faure, which will be accompanied by professor Lynne Davis on the Marcusen organ.
Other pieces include a medley from Les Miserables based on the French revolution, selections from South Pacific, whose main character is a Frenchman, and "Give me Your Tired, Your Poor," a tribute to the Statue of Liberty which was donated to the United States by the French government.
Special musical guest for the performance is the Wichita Chorus of Sweet Adelines, who is coming off of a first-place finish in their chorus division last March.
