On Friday, 5 April at 7:00pm, the State Chorale, Vox Accalia (NCSU’s women’s choir), and Singing Statesmen (NCSU’s men’s choir) will host their annual spring concert at Holy Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church in Raleigh, NC.
Each choral group will be presenting the best of the music they have rehearsed this semester. The State Chorale (my group) will sing:
“Salmo 150” – Ernani Aguiar
“Justorum animae” – Charles Villiers Stanford
“An Die Heimat” – Johannes Brahms
“O Adonai” – Roderick Williams
Three Shakespeare Songs – Matthew Harris
“Blow, Blow Thou Winter Wind”
“And Will A’ Not Come Again”
“When Daffodils Begin to Peer”
“Am I Born to Die?” – Trad. Appalachian, arr. Dwight Bigler
“Turkey in the Straw” – Trad. Appalachian, arr. Dwight Bigler
“We Shall Walk Through the Valley in Peace” – Trad. Spiritual, arr. Moses Hogan
“John the Revelator” – Trad. Gospel Blues, arr. Caldwell/Ivory
I have been honored with the Celebrant solo in Roderick Williams’ Advent antiphon, “O Adonai,” likely placing me alone in the front of the church. I don’t even like being in the front row of the choir, so here’s to stressful adventures!
This concert is open to the public.
