Choral Studies concert: Man, Myth, Music

4:00 pm

The 2009-2010 concert season of the University of Miami Frost School of Music’s Choral Studies Program continues with “Man, Myth, Music” on Sunday, February 21 at 4 p.m. at St. Philip’s Episcopal Church, 1142 Coral Way, in Coral Gables. The concert is free.

This concert will highlight the music of Michael McGlynn, composer and artistic director of the Irish choral ensemble Anuna. The University of Miami Chamber Singers will perform selections of his compositions in Irish, Latin, and English under the direction of Stacie Lee Rossow. From spirituality to love and lust, the musical selections express the human experience through the beautiful music of Ireland.

The University of Miami Women’s Chorale, conducted by Rossow and Alec Schumacker, presents a varied program centered on myths, including a playful and flirtatious Irish folk song arranged by the visiting McGlynn, two seasonal duets by Robert Schumann, a Hawaiian work about the beautiful waterfalls of Nu’uanu, and a contemporary gospel selection, Climbin’ up the Mountain.

For more information, please contact the UM Choral Studies Program at 305-284-4162, e-mail [email protected], or visit www.music.miami.edu/choralstudies.
