The CWU Choirs invite you to our fall quarter concert, “A Breeze of Fall” on Sunday, November 19 at 4pm in the Hertz Concert Hall of the McIntyre Music building on the CWU campus. The event is ticketed and features performances by University Chorale, Wildcat Chorus, Vox Divina, and The CWU Chamber Choir. University Chorale, conducted by Prof. Vijay Singh, is the largest mixed choral ensemble at CWU open to all students without audition. The ensemble builds musicianship, vocal technique, a commitment to excellence through varied programming. Chorale will present a wide selection of choral classics, including an interesting setting of Shakespearean text “O mistress mine” by Gyorgy Orban. Vox Divina, the non-auditioned treble choir, creates beauty in community by performing music infused with expression to inspire the lives of all audience members. Conducted by Dr. Nicole Lamartine, the choir will present the primal “We Are a Circle” and a rousing rendition of the Korean folksong “Arirang.” The CWU Wildcat Chorus is an energetic non-auditioned group which fosters a team attitude and support for all tenors and basses in the ensemble. This is Dr. Scott Peterson’s twelfth year conducting the ensemble, and they will present the inspiring “Ad astra” by Jacob Narverud, featuring graduate student Nathan Ortiz on piano. As is tradition, the Wildcatters will open with “Brothers, Sing On” and end with the CWU Fight Song. The CWU Chamber Choir, under the leadership of Dr. Nicole Lamartine, will make a short appearance on the program with a set including the first movement of Bernstein’s “Chichester Psalms” sung in Hebrew and featuring new faculty collaborative pianist Dr. Issac Vargas. The ensemble is the flagship choir at CWU, representing excellence of member musicianship, vocal talent, and professionalism. The pieces represent a sampling from a larger candlelight concert slated for Friday, Dec. 1 at the United Methodist Church.
