CSU Professors Ryan Olson and James Kim Present Music Near and Far

Fort Collins, Colo. – This first choral concert of the year captures people with aspects of social justice. The concert will take place on Friday, October 9, at 7:30 p.m. in Griffin Concert Hall, at the University Center for the Arts, located at 1400 Remington St.

New this year, tickets are *no charge for CSU students, $1 for youth (under 18), and $12 for the public. Tickets are available at the University Center for the Arts (UCA) ticket office in the UCA lobby Monday through Friday, 3:30-5:30 p.m. and 60 minutes prior to performances, by phone at 970-491-ARTS (2787), or online at www.CSUArtsTickets.com. Youth tickets must be purchased in person at the Ticket Office. All tickets are subject to a $1 ticket fee for both online and at-the-door purchases. Advance ticket purchase is highly recommended to avoid lines and further at-the-door fees.

The Concert Choir, conducted by Ryan Olsen, presents a program of women’s choral repertoire focusing on aspects of social justice, including Gwneth Walker’s “Tree of Peace,” highlighting gender and social issues; “Famine Song” by Matthew Culloton, which tells of the strife of women in Africa; and Jocelyn Hagen’s “Moon Goddess,” which is a song of Native American women. The program also includes pieces by Mendelssohn and Schutz. On the second half of the program, the Chamber Choir, conducted by James Kim, performs a set of Italian songs by Rossini, as well as Brahms’ famous Zigeunerlieder song cycle.
