The Brigham Young University Women’s Chorus and Men’s Chorus will perform two joint concerts on Wednesday and Friday, Feb. 20 and 22, at 7:30 p.m. in the de Jong Concert Hall.
Tickets are $10 for general admission or $7 with a BYU or student ID and can be purchase at the BYU Fine Arts Ticket Office or by calling (801) 422-4322.
The Women’s Chorus will open the performance with David Sargent’s “Mirth,” György Orbán’s Mass Number Six and a selection of songs from Canada. 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 will perform during the second half of the concert, featuring sections titled “Three Ancient Texts Set in Contemporary Style,” “Over Jordon” and “Tonight at Eight.” Directed by Rosalind Hall, the Men’s Chorus 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.
