Details GU Concert Choir Fall Concert: Texts That Inspire
Professor C. Paul Heins, Director

Nov. 19 at 8 p.m. in Dahlgren Chapel

Ticket Prices: Free; no tickets required. The concert is a benefit for our sponsored charity (TBD), with a suggested donation of $5.00 per audience member.

The 45-voice Concert Choir’s fall program features works with inspiring texts. The principal work on the program is Leonard Bernstein’s Missa Brevis, a setting of the Ordinary of the Mass (minus the Credo and adding Dona Nobis Pacem). Other works on the program include Three Songs by minimalist composer Philip Glass (texts by Leonard Cohen, Raymond Lévesque, and Octavio Paz), The 21st Century: A Girl Born in Afghanistan by Greg Bartholomew (text excerpted from Kofi Annan’s lecture upon accepting the 2001 Nobel Peace Prize), and “O Vos Omnes,” a short work by Pablo Casals (setting of Lamentations 1:12). The program will conclude with “Hope for Resolution,” by Paul Caldwell & Sean Ivory. This final work is a pairing of the plainsong “Of the Father’s Love Begotten” and a South African freedom song (sung in Zulu).

Guest artists will include members of the World Percussion Ensemble (directed by Prof. Joe McCarthy), performing the percussion parts in Bernstein’s Missa Brevis and Caldwell & Ivory’s “Hope for Resolution.” The final work will also feature guest instrumentalists and the university’s Chapel Choir (directed by Dr. Russell Weissman).
