Concert Choir and Chamber Singers free concert set for April 9

April 3, 2013 — Morehead State University’s Concert Choir and Chamber Singers will present a free concert on Tuesday, April 9, at 7:30 p.m. at First Baptist Church, located at 123 East Main Street.

The 35-voice Concert Choir and 21-voice Chamber Singers are conducted by Dr. Greg Detweiler. The concert is part of a five-day concert tour throughout Kentucky, Ohio and Pennsylvania.

The program titled “I See the Heaven’s Glories Shine,” presents contrasts of darkness and light. It features the music of Dr. Frank Ticheli, who will be the guest artist-in-residence as part of the 2013 MSU Contemporary Music Festival.

Concert Choir will open with Handel’s “How Excellent Thy Name” followed by Victoria’s “O Magnum Mysterium.” This first part of the program contains a variety of sacred selections including “Clap Your Hands” and “Grant us Peace” by Edwin Fissinger, “Pilgrims Hymn” by Stephen Paulus, and “I See the Heaven’s Glories Shine” by Andrea Ramsey.

The Chamber Singers’ portion of the program features Claude Debusy’s “Trois Chansons.” The group also will sing “A Western Ballad” by Tyler Kline, “Birds Are Never Soaring Too High” by Lars-Erik Larsson, and “Earth Song” by Frank Ticheli. Their set will end with Ray Liebau’s arrangement of “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands” and Marlos Nobre’s arrangement of the Brazilian folksong, “Muié Rendêre.”

Concert Choir will conclude the evening with “Constellations” by Frank Ticheli and a variety of multicultural pieces. These include “Noche de Lluvia” by Sid Robinovich, “This Little Light of Mine” arranged by Moses Hogan, and “I’ll Ay Call in by Yon Town” arranged by Mark Wilberg.

Concert Choir and Chamber Singers represent the University on regional, national and international tours. Recent trips have included an eight-day tour of Hungary and Austria, a 10-day concert tour of Costa Rica, and a five-day concert tour of Virginia. The groups have appeared at state and regional conventions of the Music Educators National Conference. The MSU Chamber Singers recently won their division with the gold diploma at the 2012 World Choir Games in Cincinnati.
