Sunday, January 16, 2011 - 7:30pm

The University Choir concludes its winter tour with a home concert.

Fresh off its five-state tour, the University Choir will perform a concert of classic choral literature. The 90-minute program will include many classical styles including music by Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina, Morten Lauridsen, Johannes Brahms, and Eric Whitacre. The program will also include spirituals by Moses Hogan and Jester Hairston, Lithuanian children's stories set to music, and Scandinavian ballads. The choir will open the concert with a seven-part processional and will close with it's signature piece, Sir Malcolm Sargent's Silent Night.

This concert will be held in O'Donnell Auditorium, located at 50th Street and Huntington Ave. It is free and open to the public.
