The combined Brigham Young University choirs will perform during the annual Winter ChoirFest concerts on Friday and Saturday, Jan. 25 and 26, at 7:30 p.m. in the Provo Tabernacle.

Tickets are $10 or $7 with a BYU or student ID. To purchase tickets, call the BYU Fine Arts Ticket Office at (801) 422-4322.

The BYU Singers, Concert Choir, Men’s Chorus and Women’s Chorus are well known for their polished performances and versatility of style and genre. This concert will include many sacred pieces, as well as traditional and folk songs, including pieces by David Sargent, György Orbán, Paul A. Aitken and Leonard Bernstein.

The ChoirFest will provide a preview of each choir’s repertoire for the remainder of the school year. Each of the choirs will perform two additional concerts on the BYU campus during winter semester. For more information, see the performance calendar online at performances.byu.edu.

Conducted by Jean Applonie, the Women's Chorus is a large group of select, versatile singers who perform a diverse repertoire extending from medieval and renaissance works to masterpieces of our own time. The Men's Chorus, under the direction of Rosalind Hall, is the largest collegiate male choral organization in the United States. It is one of BYU's most popular performing groups, regularly singing to sold-out concert halls both on and off campus.

The Concert Choir is a very select ensemble of 90 advanced singers, and has acquired an outstanding reputation for its captivating performances of great choral literature encompassing many different styles and genres. The choir is conducted by Rosalind Hall.

The BYU Singers is a small, select choir of flexible singer-musicians with the reputation of being a captivating, versatile choir with an impressive repertoire and range of style. One of the major touring ensembles of the university, the Singers are conducted by Ronald Staheli.
