The ensembles will perform individually in addition to a joint performance of works by Felix Mendelssohn
“For the past few years, BYU Singers and Concert Choir have collaborated with the fabulous Baroque Ensemble to perform great works of the choral-orchestral repertoire,” said BYU Singers director Andrew Crane. “Recent joint performances have included Handel’s ‘Messiah’ and the Vivaldi Magnificat. The Baroque Ensemble, a chamber orchestra conducted by Alexander Woods, specializes in historically-informed performances of these treasured works of antiquity.”
The concert will feature individual performances by each ensemble representing a variety of styles and time periods. The choirs and orchestra will also join together to perform works by Felix Mendelssohn, including “Non Nobis, Domine” and “Wer nur den lieben Gott läßt walten.”
Crane looks forward to sharing the stage with Woods, Concert Choir director Rosalind Hall and their student ensembles.
“On a personal level, it is a great pleasure for me to collaborate with my fellow faculty members in this way,” said Crane. “The conductors and students of all three ensembles strive for absolute excellence in every musical detail, which makes this concert one of my favorite annual events.”
