Kean University Choral
All Saints Episcopal Church
Monday, March 10, 2014, 8:00 - 9:30 pm
Roanoke Rapids welcomes Kean for a repeat appearance!
The Kean University Choirs, Union NJ features: 45-voice Concert Choir, 25-voice Chorale and 16-voice Men’s Choir performing a program featuring music of Lent. The entire program will be less than an hour and half, and is part of a five day tour including Richmond, Myrtle Beach, and Roanoke Rapids, NC.
The concert will open with fiery music from Handel’s Messiah (“Surely, He Hath Born our Griefs”), the sublime “Et in terra pax” (let there be peace on earth) from Vivaldi’s Gloria, excerpts from Bach’s Cantata BWV 161, and Durufle’s Ubi Caritas (“Where there is charity and love, there is God").
Next, the smaller Chorale will perform lively and expressive madrigal pieces including "Sing We and Chant It" and "April is in My Mistress’ Face," as well as contemporary selections such as the Kings Singers arrangement of “And So It Goes” (Billy Joel). The Kean ensembles will complete the program with sacred music, first with the Men’s Chamber Choir in the spiritual “Were You There” and Palestrina’s "Adoramus te," and finally with two rousing selections by the Concert Choir, Dawson’s "Soon Ah Will Be Done" and "Joyful, Joyful" from Sister Act II.
Please share the joyful return of this wonderful dedicated group.
