BYU's popular Men's Chorus in concert March 14-15

The Brigham Young University Men's Chorus, the largest collegiate male chorus in the country, will perform Friday and Saturday (March 14 and 15) at 7:30 p.m. in the de Jong Concert Hall.

Tickets at $9 for the general public or $3 off with a BYU or student ID are available at the Fine Arts Ticket Office, (801) 378-4322 or www.byu.edu/hfac.

Directed by Rosalind Hall, the highlight of the concert will be the performance of five different folk songs of the world, including "Hava Nagila" from Israel, "Dravidian" from India, "The Banks of Doon" from Scotland with Bryan Catanzaro on the oboe, "Hol You Han" from Jamaica and "Las Amarillas" from Mexico.

"The Men's Chorus is captivating. There is a special and powerful musical thrill that comes from hearing 230 well-trained men's voices," said Hall.

"Known for opening their hearts to their audiences, the group is excited about everything they sing," Hall said.

The Men's Chorus was founded in 1958 by Ralph Woodward, who conducted until his retirement in 1984. Mack Wilberg then conducted the ensemble until the fall of 1999 when current conductor Rosalind Hall began directing the group.

Choir members are drawn from every college and department of the university and represent freshmen through graduate students. The choir continually performs the great repertoire for men's voices of all periods, as well as folksongs, spirituals and novelty pieces.
