McNeese Chamber Singers Concert Set

February 15, 2019 | McNeese Public Relations

The McNeese State University W.A.
and Dorothy Hanna Department of Performing Arts will present the McNeese
Chamber Singers in a free concert at 7 p.m. Friday, Feb. 22, in the Shearman
Fine Arts Tritico Theatre. The Chamber Singers are under the direction of Dr. Darryl
Jones, director of choral activities, and accompanied by Dr. Ulysses Loken on
piano.

The group will perform “Procession Winding Around Me” by Jeffrey Van. Inspired by four Civil War poems by Walt Whitman, each movement represents a distinct poem: “By the Bivouac’s Fitful Flame,” “Beat! Beat! Drums!,” “Look Down Fair Moon” and “Reconciliation.” McNeese faculty member Dr. Jay Kacherski will accompany on guitar.

The Chamber Singers will also perform two Renaissance madrigals, “All Creatures Now Are Merry Minded” by John Bennet and “Weep, Weep, O Mine Eyes” by John Wilbye, as well as “Dixit” from “Vesperae solennes de confessore” by W.A. Mozart and “How Lovely Is Thy Dwelling Place” from Johannes Brahm’s “A German Requiem.”
