Choir to conclude spring tour with home concert

Wake Forest University’s 36-member Concert Choir will conclude its spring tour with an on-campus concert in Brendle Recital Hall on March 21.

The choir performed in Raleigh; Wilmington, Del.; New Britain, Penn.; and Washington, D.C. from March 3-6.

The concert will begin at 8 p.m. with the 16th century “Sound the Trumpet in Sion” by Palestrina and the 11th century “O Redness of the Blood” by Hildegard von Bingen. Both will be sung in Latin.

The choir will sing in German selections from Bach’s “Jesu, My Joy” and Brahms’ “Forest Night.” They will also sing two Christmas anthems written by Wake Forest composer-in-residence Dan Locklair.

In addition, the concert will feature a Cole Porter tune and an American spiritual.

Brian Gorelick, conductor of the Concert Choir, is associate professor of music and director of choral ensembles at Wake Forest. Joanne Inkman, Wake Forest staff accompanist, will play the piano.

Admission to the concert is free. For information, call 336-758-5026.
