The Knox College Choir will have their first concert of the academic year on November 3. The concert begins at 3 p.m. in Kresge Hall, Ford Center for Fine Arts, at Knox College.
The Knox College Choir is the premier choral ensemble of the College. The choir, under the direction of professor of music and director of choral activities Laura Lane, will perform a unique selection of music in various styles, from Rennaisance to Romantic. These will include Gaude et laetare by Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck; Herr, nun lässest du by Felix Mendelssohn; and Sehnsucht by Johnanes Brahms.
In addition, the choir will perform two contemporary pieces. To Sit and Dream by Rosphanye Powell is a composition set to the poem of the same name by Langston Hughes. The choir will also perform a classical piece with a modern twist, Cum Sancto Spiritu, composed by Hyo-Won Woo.
The Chamber Singers, an advanced choir comprised of members of the KCC, will perform Dieu, qu’il la fait bon regarder by Claude Debussy; Ubi caritas by Maurice Duruflé; and Gloria, from The Bluegrass Mass by Carol Barnett.
Three of the pieces will feature a piano accompaniment, performed by Casey Dierlam.
All choir concerts are free and open to the public.
