The BYU Men's and Women's Choruses directed by Rosalind Hall and Jean Applonie will perform their fall concert Thursday and Friday, Nov. 5-6, at 7:30 p.m. in the de Jong Concert Hall.
Tickets are $9 and $3 off with student ID. For tickets, call the Fine Arts Ticket Office at (801) 378-4322 or visit http://performances.byu.edu.
The Men's Chorus will perform three 20th-century settings of Old Testament texts including "Praise Him!" from Psalms 150 by Michael Cox, "Isaiah 44:3" by Jackson Berkey and "O Be Joyful in the Lord" from Psalms 100 by Gilbert Martin.
They will also sing pieces by Osamu Shimizu, Paul Halley, Mac Davis, Phillips Paul Bliss, Robert Williams, Stephen Paulus and Lane Johnson.
At the end of this school year the BYU Men's Chorus will release their third CD, which will include many of the songs from their fall performance.
The Women's Chorus will start their program with "I Thank You God" by Gwyneth Walker, a piece with the setting of an e.e. Cummings poem.
The program consists of five thematic sets of music, which convey various moods to the audience including peace, somberness, praise and redemption, said Applonie.
"Our concluding set combines three pieces that speak of wonder and awe at the boundless nature of creation," said Applonie.
