03.03.17 Chamber Choir and Concert ChoirWith guests CSU Concert Orchestra

The Concert Choir and Concert Orchestra perform Gloria by Antonio Vivaldi, conducted by Leslie Stewart. This masterwork is a staple of the choral/orchestral repertoire, and is one of the most beloved and quintessential pieces from the Baroque era. “I’m thrilled that the two groups are continuing their tradition of collaboration to share this amazing piece,” said Ryan Olsen, the choir’s director. The Chamber Choir, conducted by James Kim, performs the five movement suite, “Songs of Ariel” by Swiss composer Frank Martin, a virtuoso work for acapella chorus based on The Tempest by William Shakespeare. Additionally, the choir performs works by J.S. Bach, Felix Mendelssohn, and Gustav Mahler in preparation for their European tour to Germany and Prague this summer. “The audience will hear terrific acapella music sung by some of the best musicians at CSU,” added Dr. Kim.
