Directed by Donald Busarow, professor of music, and accompanied by Christopher Durrenberger, associate professor of music, the choir’s performance will be the final concert of its 2006 spring tour. The tour included 13 concerts in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New York and Ohio.
Busarow, who has directed the choir for 24 of its 76-year history, consistently looks for unusual pieces that he believes are worthy of performing along with the “masters.” He also aims to put together a program that includes something for everyone.
The 41 choir members will sing in German, Latin, Russian and English as they bring the wide variety of music to life. Selections include The Dream Isaiah Saw , scored by Glenn L. Rudolph (2001), on a poem by Thomas Troeger in memory of those who perished on Sept. 11, 2001; J.S. Bach’s Lobet den Herrn, alle Heiden, this year’s motet; Mozart’s Ave Verum Corpus, in commemoration of the composer’s 250 th birthday; and two recent African pieces.
Compositions by Rheinberger, Philips, Rachmaninoff, Aguiar, Ticheli, McCutchen, Martin and Busarow are also included in the program.
