The performance will feature the Pacific University Concert Choir presenting a wide range of songs including A Jubilant Day performed by the composer and our concert choir director, Judy Rose.
This concert will also feature the Pacific University Chamber Singers under the direction of Scott Tuomi performing a variety of works including William Byrd's Haec Dies in celebration of Byrd's 400th anniversary, a choral version of Bob Dylan's The Times They are a Changin' arranged by Adam Podd, Stephen Paulus' beautiful The Road Home in celebration of the life of Pacific music librarian, Santha Zaik, Morten Lauridsen's Soneto de la Noce set to a text by Chilean poet Pablo Neruda and the rollicking Seinn O a traditional piece of Scottish mouth music, which sets Gaelic lyrics to instrumental tune melodies.
In addition, the a cappella sensation, Vera Voce will perform and there will be a special "Halloween" treat selection by the tenors and basses from the chamber singers to celebrate the season!
