SPRINGFIELD, Ohio - The Wittenberg Choir, directed by Donald A. Busarow, professor of music, will present a free public concert at 8 p.m. Friday, March 21 in Weaver Chapel on campus.
The choir has just returned from this year's spring tour, during which the 60-voice group performed 12 concerts in Ohio, Georgia, North and South Carolina, Maryland and Washington, D.C. In previous tours the choir has traveled across the United States, Canada, Latin America, Europe and Russia.
Featured in the concert will be the multi-movement motet "Jesu, meine Freude" by J.S. Bach. A variety of works ranging from spirituals to well-loved hymns will be performed, along with three pieces from the Russian Orthodox Church.
Being a singer in the Wittenberg Choir is no easy commitment. Earning a position for one year is no guarantee of a permanent position. Annual auditions are held, and selections are based on voice quality, ability to sing in tune and ability to read music among other qualifications. The choir also is made up of student performers from a wide variety of majors and disciplines, representing every academic department on campus.
A former Ohio governor designated the Wittenberg Choir "Ohio's Musical Ambassadors of Good Will" for its leading position among the nation's college choirs.
