– New and Old” will feature works by current composers
as well as music representing America’s heritage.
“The first half
of the concert will be newer music by American composers who are
making a name for themselves,” said Dr. Susan Stewart, TWU
choral activities coordinator and concert conductor.
The concert will open
with Rene Clausen’s “Psalm 100,” followed by “Songs
of Meditation” by Stephen Paulus. The latter works include
texts taken from female writers from ancient times, Stewart said.
The choir also will perform
the traditional folk songs “Shenandoah,” “Deep
River” and “How Can I Keep From Singing,” and
will end the concert with two African-American spirituals, “Lily
of the Valley” and “Ride On King Jesus.”
