Kick off the 2022-23 choral season with the University Singers, Glee Club and Cantatrici. Showcasing Lacey R. Lynch, conductor of Cantatrici, and members of the Choral Conducting Mentorship Program (CCMP), the first half of the program will be centered around Latvian composer Laura Jekabsone’s “Sudraba Meness” as well as the amazing Sihr Khalaq-an incredible combination of Arabic rhythm, textures and style.
The University Singers, conducted by Shane M. Lynch, are finalists for the City of Derry International Choir Festival in October, the first American choir ever to be selected for this competition.
They will present their competition and gala concert sets, which feature the music of Tomás Luis de Victoria, Frank Martin, Stacey V. Gibbs and Rosephayne Powell.
Traditional favorites will round out the evening, finally closing with James Erb’s “Shenandoah.”
The Parents and Family Weekend Concert is designed for the families and friends of the students.
