DeSales University Chorale Presents Evening Programs of Contemplative Classics, May 7 & 8
The DeSales University Chorale and Schola Cantorum will be present, ". . . AND BE STAID . . .," an evening of contemplative classics, at 8:00 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, May 7 and 8, in Connelly Chapel. The performances are open to the public free of charge.
The program will feature Schubert's Mass in G, and works by Brahms, Vittoria, Stanford, Willan, Sondheim, and Thompson.
Chorale is a mixed company of men's and women's voices made up of some 50 DeSales students from all academic disciplines. In the chorale, students develop basic music and singing skills. Schola Cantorum is a small, mixed group of men's and women's voices made up of selected choral scholars and appointed singers. The Schola Cantorum serves as the skilled backbone of the Chorale and augments the Chorale concerts with performances of its own.
The program will be conducted by Paul Summerlin, artistic director at DeSales University, with Lorenz Maycher playing the piano. Summerlin holds a bachelor of music degree in voice performance and a master of music degree in conducting, both from the University of Arkansas, where he studied under the tutelage of Dr. Jack Groh.
Summerlin was associate director of the Arkansas Schola Cantorum for the 2002-2003 academic year. He has extensive experience as a church choirmaster, choral technician, and vocal coach.
Lorenz Maycher is a musician of national reputation, having played recitals and worship services on many of the great organs across the country.
