Montana State University's Chorale and the Montanans choral group will perform in a concert set at 7:30 p.m. Monday, March 5, in Reynolds Recital Hall.

Admission is free and open to the public.

The MSU Chorale will perform Igor Stravinsky's cantata, "The Wedding," which was written for four-part chorus, four soloists and four pianos as well as xylophone, timpani, crotales, bells and drums. Laurel Yost, Julie Gosswiller, Beth Lee, and Sallie Dugger will play the four pianos and Stephen Versaevel and Jeffrey Vick will play the various percussion instruments. Members of Chorale will sing the vocal solos.

The Montanans will sing four of Morten Lauridsen's "Fire Songs." Lauridsen composed these madrigals in 1987 based on his study of the music of Monteverdi and Gesualdo, selecting Italian love poems that share symbolic imagery of flame and burning desire.

Both groups are under the direction of Kirk Aamot, professor in the MSU School of Music.

The Reynolds Recital Hall is located in Howard Hall, across the street from the MSU Duck Pond.
