BYU's University Chorale shares joy of singing Dec. 10

Hundreds of voices will fill the de Jong Concert Hall Wednesday (Dec. 10) at 7:30 p.m. as the Brigham Young University School of Music presents University Chorale in concert.

The performance is free and the public is welcome to attend.

Paul Broomhead and Joseph Hoffman will conduct the concert, which will feature performers from two sections of the University Chorale classes. Michelle Stephan and Nathan Wright will assist.

Broomhead said University Chorale is a significant group on campus because it provides personal growth for the students who participate.

"Most students are in these two choirs primarily for the joy of singing," Broomhead said. "It is a great pleasure for a conductor to work with young people who are willing to leave their comfort zones and whole-heartedly invest in an artistic experience."

The choirs will perform music written and arranged by Martin Shaw, Peter Warlock, James Mulholland, Maurice Goldman, Robert H. Young, Ian Hare, George L. Marbry, John Sanders, Erin H. Thiman, Maurice Durufle, Josef Rheinberger, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Mack Wilberg, Philip Kern, Gilbert M. Martin, Carl J. Nygard Jr. and Pamela Groo Peterson.

The University Chorale has two sections that meet and perform separately. Although they are non-auditioned choirs, they perform challenging music and demand a high level of excellence.

"The students' enthusiasm is contagious, and I think that it will rub off on those who attend the concert," Broomhead said.

Accompanists include Megan Cole, Emily Walker, Danielle Reist, Julia Thomas, Dustin Nicholes and Becky Nibley. The program also will feature Harmony Higgs, Scott Lesser and Angie Richards on cello; McKenzi Williams on bass; Kimberly Isom on harp; Katie Haycock on flute; and Danielle Streeter on oboe.
