The School of Music at Brigham Young University will present its popular Choral Showcase featuring more than 500 voices from BYU’s audition choirs Friday and Saturday, Sept. 28-29, in the Provo Tabernacle (100 S. University Avenue). The Friday performance will begin at 7:30 p.m., while the Saturday concert will begin at 8:30 p.m.
Choirs will perform pieces from their upcoming PBS special and new album, and they will use the powerful Provo Tabernacle Organ as accompaniment on some of the numbers.
Tickets can be purchased for $6 at the Fine Arts Ticket Office, by calling (801) 422-4322 or by visiting performances.byu.edu.
The concert will feature the BYU Singers, conducted by Ronald Staheli; the Concert Choir and Men’s Chorus, conducted by Rosalind Hall; and the Women’s Chorus, conducted by Jean Applonie.
In a change from the typical choral program, the choirs will perform a dynamic, fast-paced program instead of each choir performing an entire set.
The performance will include “I Sing the Mighty Power,” “Antiphon,” “My Shepherd Will Supply My Need,” “Sicut locutus est,” “Ubi caritas,” Ascendit Deus,” “Wayfaring Stranger,” “Jubilate,” “Awake My Heart,” “To Be a Pilgrim” and “Carol of Joy.”
