SPRINGFIELD, Ohio — The Wittenberg Choir, directed by Donald A. Busarow, professor of music and university organist, will present a concert at 8 p.m. Friday, March 18, in Weaver Chapel on campus.
The choir has just returned from its 2005 spring tour, during which the 40-voice group performed 13 concerts in the states of Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan and Ohio. The Wittenberg Choir is one of the most traveled college choral groups in the world, having earned rave reviews from critics across the United States and in Canada, Latin America, Europe and Russia. This was the choir’s 23rd tour under Busarow’s direction.
The choir’s repertoire ranges from Renaissance to contemporary music. It includes selections sung in English, Latin, German, Russian, French and Spanish.
This year’s concert features the motet for two choirs, “Das ist meine Freude” by Johann Ludwig Bach. A variety of works ranging from spirituals to well-loved hymns will also be performed, along with two pieces from the Russian Orthodox Church.
For more information about the concert, which is free admission and open to the public, or the Wittenberg Choir, call the department of music at (937) 327-7341.
