University Singers Tour Home Concert
Tuesday, February 27, 2018
Wilson Hall/Concert Hall
Join the renowned University Singers as they return from their 2018 tour of the Northeast and Midwest with an evening of a capella choral mastery. The tour will include feature performances in Washington, D.C., New Haven (Yale), Philadephia, Louisville, and elsewhere, featuring the choir performing music from Bach to pieces composed specifically for the tour by conductor Shane M. Lynch. The heart of the concert will be a set entitled A Soldier’s Tale centered on Ēriks Ešenvalds’ haunting A Soldier’s Mother’s Lullaby. Finally, the program closes with folk songs, gospel music, and other works of Americana that are always audience favorites, including Shawn Kirchner’s wonderful new arrangement of Sweet Rivers.
