Kent State University Chorale Presents The World SingsPosted Oct. 21, 2013
Kent State University’s Hugh A. Glauser School of Music presents the Kent State Chorale Fall Concert, under the baton of Associate Professor of Music Scott MacPherson, on Sunday, Oct. 27, at 7:30 p.m. at St. Patrick Catholic Church located at 313 N. DePeyster St. in Kent.
The audience will be dazzled and moved with selections by composers from Estonia, South Africa and Venezuela. The chorale will perform a variety of sacred and secular music spanning five centuries, from motets of Tomás Luis de Victoria and Sebastian Vivanco, to music of Franz Joseph Haydn, Sergei Rachmaninoff, Arvo Pärt and his Estonian countryman Urmas Sisask. Rounding out the world tour are American composers Randall Thompson, Andrew Rindfleisch and Ron Jeffers, as well as South Africa’s Peter Louis Van Dijk, and Venezuela’s Alberto Grau.
“Come experience the amazing and infinite sounds of the human voice in the beautiful resonant sanctuary of St. Patrick Catholic Church,” says MacPherson.
The group rehearses four days a week to master five centuries of choral literature. As the flagship choral ensemble of the university, the Kent State Chorale performs on campus and throughout the region and state, touring each spring semester.
Tickets for the performance are $15 for adults, $13 for seniors and Kent State faculty and staff, $10 for groups of 10 or more patrons, $8 for non-Kent State students, $5 for children, and free for full-time Kent Campus undergraduate students.
Tickets are available weekdays noon to 5 p.m. at the Performing Arts Box Office, located in the lobby of the Roe Green Center in the Center for the Performing Arts at 1325 Theatre Drive on the Kent Campus. The Performing Arts Box Office accepts Visa, MasterCard and Discover, in addition to cash and checks.
