Wake Forest choral concert to be held Oct. 22
October 2, 2009
The Wake Forest University choirs will begin the 2009-2010 concert season with a program of “Music for Chorus and Guitar” at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 22 in the university’s Brendle Recital Hall at Scales Fine Arts Center.
The program will feature Wake Forest’s Concert Choir and Collegium Vocal Ensemble, virtuoso guitarist Carlos Perez of Chile and the guitar students of Patricia Dixon, senior lecturer in music at the university.
The Concert Choir will sing music by Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco with guitar accompaniment, as well as the allegri “Misere” and an arrangement of the American hymn, “How Can I Keep from Singing.”
The Collegium Vocal Ensemble will present two John Dowland songs with guitar in place of the traditional lute, in addition to Frank Ticheli’s “Earth Song.”
Perez will play a solo set of compositions of his selection. Student guitarists will form a small ensemble to present a set of pieces by Turina.
All performers will combine to close the concert with selections for choir and guitar orchestra by Soublette and Ramirez.
The concert is part of the new Wake Forest Guitar Series.
Tickets will be on sale at the door for $10 for general admission. Wake Forest faculty, staff and students will be admitted free. Please call the Wake Forest Department of Music at 758-5364 for information.
