The combined choirs from the Utah State University Department of Music present their annual fall concert, âAutumn Voices,â Thursday, Oct. 3, at 7:30 p.m. in the Russell/Wanlass Performance Hall on the USU campus.
âCelebrate the fall season with beautiful choral music in an exquisite venue,â Cory Evans, director of the choral program and professor in the Caine College of the Arts (CCA), said.
The concert features the USU Chamber Singers and USU Chorale, directed by Evans, and the USU Womenâs Choir, directed by Claudia Bigler.
âThe USU Chamber Singers present a tribute to the anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing with a haunting performance of Eriks Esenvaldsâ âStarsâ and the jazz classic âOld Devil Moon,ââ Evans said. âThey will also perform music of Palestrina and a collection of American folk songs including âHis Voice as the Soundâ and a medley of spirituals featuring soloists from the ensemble.â
The USU Chorale will perform an arrangement of â70s pop songs. Then, the women of the USU Chamber Singers and USU Chorale will also perform a selection of songs celebrating 100 years of the 19th amendment, which guaranteed American women the right to vote.
