Concert Choir Tour Home Performance Announced
March 13, 2012
The NDSU Concert Choir, under the direction of Dr. Jo Ann Miller, will present their spring tour concert on Sunday, March 25th at 2 p.m. in Festival Concert Hall. The choir recently returned from their successful spring tour where they performed at the North Central American Choral Directors Conference to outstanding reviews.
Well-known choral conductor and composer Dale Warland wrote, “Congratulations on a fabulous performance…from top to bottom. I was so moved. Everything about it was exactly as I would want to hear it.”
Jo-Michael Scheibe, President of the American Choral Directors Association wrote, “Thank you for a most impressive performance...a tour de force of repertoire.”
The program includes music of contemporary masters such as Arvo Part and Arnold Schoenberg as well as the music of di Lasso, Saint-Saens, Brahms, Finzi and Cornelius. The choir will be premiering a work by Eric Saari, one of NDSU’s doctoral students in choral conducting. Also on the program will be many American works, which will be featured on the choir’s tour to Croatia and Italy this May.
