TWU Concert Choir Puts Focus On American Music

10/6/04


DENTON — American music will fill the air as the Texas Woman’s University Concert Choir performs Thursday, Oct. 14. The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. in the Margo Jones Performance Hall, located at Pioneer Circle and Oakland Avenue on TWU’s Denton campus. Admission is free. For more information, call (940) 898-2500.

“American Music – 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.”
