BOZEMAN – The Montana State University choirs, including the Montanans, University Choir and University Chorale will perform their first concert of the season at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 17, in Reynolds Recital Hall.
The University Choir will perform William Hawley’s contemporary take on the traditional madrigal “Siepe, che gli orti vaghi.” They will also perform Tomas Luis de Victoria’s “Sanctus and Benedictus,” concluding their set with a new arrangement by Zachary Moore called “Hutia te Rito,” which celebrates the traditional chant of the Maori tribes of northern New Zealand.
The Montanans will sing Welsh composer Karl Jenkins’ new setting of the “Ave Maria” text, followed by a Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina motet and a vocal arrangement of Gioachino Rossini’s “Barber of Seville Overture.”
The University Chorale will perform a Johann Pachelbel motet for double choir and a new work by Minnesota composer Daniel Elder.
The concert will close with a joint performance by all three groups singing William Dawson’s “Every Time I Feel the Spirit.”
Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for students and seniors. Tickets may be purchased at the door.
Reynolds Recital Hall is located in Howard Hall, across the street from the MSU Duck Pond.
