Pacific University's Music Department presents its Fall Choral Concert

The Fall Choral Concert takes place at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 2,  in the Taylor-Meade Performing Arts Center (2014 Cedar Street) on the Forest Grove Campus.

The Chamber Singers will perform several works by William Byrd, Estonia composer Arvo Part, Cesaer Geoffray, Taiwanese composer Yu-shan and others.

In addition, student a cappella groups Splendid Audacity and Voce Femme will be perform. 

The Concert Choir will present a varied set of choral repertoire from the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries. 

From the 19th century, the choir will sing Peter I. Tchaikovsky’s, "Blazenni jaze izbral.”

The balance of the set are newer works including: "Carpenters of God," by Northwest native Vijah Singh; "Good Night, Dear Heart,” by Dan Forrest; and a poignant and personal dedication upon the loss of an infant, "The Ground,” by Norwegian Ola Gjeilo.

This piece is based on the chorale from the last movement of Gjeilo's "Sunrise Mass,” and will be accompanied by Pacific freshman, Hannah Early ’16.

Also featured will be "To The Mothers In Brazil: Salve Regina,” a haunting work by Swedish composer Lars Jansson (arranged by Gunnar Eriksson).

General admission is $7, or $5 for senior citizens 65 and greater, Pacific students, faculty and staff.

Tickets may be purchased in advance by calling 503-352-2918.
