Join director Dr. Tom Wine in June for the WSU Summer Choir! The theme of the concert is “Music: Life and Death.” The program will be in two halves. The first part of the program is music representing different stages of life. The musical journey goes from birth (Jenny Rebecca) to young love (Kiss the Girl) and dating (Take a Chance on Me) to marriage (Sunrise Sunset) older relationships (Harmony in Marriage) and finally a look back (Circle of Life). The second half of the concert will feature excerpts from John Rutter’s beautiful Requiem. If you know the music of John Rutter, you know he has a talent for writing glorious melodies with lush harmonies. This setting of the Requiem is accessible and a wonderful opportunity to perform a major work with a large choir.
The summer choir meets on Mondays and Wednesdays in June. We practice from 5:00-6:45pm. We will be rehearsing in C-107 in Duerksen, and the concert will be in Wiedemann Hall. There is a $50 participation fee to be a part of the program which can be paid on line prior to rehearsals or in person at the first rehearsal on June 6th. Click HERE to register and pay the fee. Graduate credit is offered for participation in the choir.
