Returning from a week-long concert tour of Italy, the
Knox Choir presents its Home Tour Concert at 7:30 p.m.,
Friday, March 27 in Kresge Recital Hall, Ford Center for the Fine Arts.
The concert is free and open to the public.
Directed by Laura Lane, professor of music and director of choral
activities at Knox, the 48-member choir will perform the broad
repertoire of classical and contemporary choral works, including
several in Italian, that were featured at its six concerts between
March 18 and 23, in L’Aquila, Pescara, Teramo, Lucca and Pisa, Italy.
The program will showcase water-tuned glass chimes to accompany
“Stars” by Latvian composer Eriks Esenvalds; an inspirational work, “O
Magnum Mysterium,” by African-American composer Kevin Memley; the
American folk hymn “Hark, I Hear the Harps Eternal”; and the
traditional African-American spiritual “Wade in de Water.”
