UW-Green Bay vocalists present fall concert this Saturday
There will be a decidedly autumnal feel to the first student vocal concert of the 2009-2010 performing arts season, Saturday (Oct. 24) in Cofrin Hall at the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts on the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay campus.
Under the direction of Prof. Randall Meder and with accompanist Mary Slavek, the UW-Green Bay Concert Choir will open with G.P. da Palestrina’s Sieut Cervus (“As the deer panteth after the water brooks, so longeth my soul after thee, O God).” Later, soloists Noel Fricke, Kristin Poehls and Jennifer Meiselwitz will be featured on O Sifuni Mungu.
Following an intermission the UW-Green Bay Chamber Singers will take the stage to perform three selections under the direction of Prof. Courtney Sherman.
The UW-Green Bay Vocal Jazz Ensemble will perform several selections, including In My Life by Lennon and McCartney. The evening will close with the UW-Green Bay Chorale performing Frostiana, a selection based upon some of the most famous writings of poet Robert Frost.
The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $7 for adults and $5 for students and seniors.
