University Singers to Present ‘The Divine, the Earthen and the Mysterious’
The Syracuse University Singers will present the concert “The Divine, the Earthen and the Mysterious,” featuring works by Vaughan Williams, Hindemith and Brinsmead, on Wednesday, Nov. 12, at 8 p.m. in the Rose and Jules R. Setnor Auditorium, Crouse College. The concert is free and open to the public.
“The Divine” portion of the program includes works by Widmer, Berger, Essenvalds, Gjeilo, Bruckner and Vaughan Williams. “The Earthen” section includes works by Hindemith and Brinsmead. “The Mysterious” section concludes the concert with music by Haydn, Poulenc and Caldwell and Ivory.
The University Singers perform under the direction of John Warren, associate professor and director of choral activities in the College of Visual and Performing Arts’ Rose, Jules R. and Stanford S. Setnor School of Music. Denise Ellis will appear as assistant conductor, and Sabine Krantz will accompany on piano.
For nearly 50 years the University Singers have upheld a rich tradition of excellence in choral singing characteristic of the most select vocal musicians of the Setnor School of Music. The choir has been invited to sing for multiple conferences of the American Choral Directors Association, including its recent appearance at the 2014 Eastern Division Conference in Baltimore. Additionally, the ensemble has toured throughout the east coast of the U.S. and Canada.
The ensemble is comprised of 32-40 undergraduate and graduate students from a variety of disciplines and regularly performs with professional orchestras in Syracuse. Recent masterworks include the Requiems by Brahms, Fauré and Verdi; Beethoven’s 9th Symphony; Mahler’s 2nd Symphony; and Haydn’s “The Creation.” The choir will travel to France May 25-June 4, 2015, with stops in Paris, Chartres, Tours, Rheims and Strasbourg.
