UWGB Concert Choir Performs Reformation Works!

UW-Green Bay’s Concert Choir and University Singers will perform at the Weidner Center’s Cofrin Family Hall on Saturday, Oct. 21 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets can be purchased in-person at all Ticket Star locations, including the Resch Center and the University Ticketing and Information Center, or can be purchased online. The UW-Green Bay Concert Choir will be performing a variety of music, including a set of works that came out of the Protestant Reformation. The Green Bay Choral Artists (alumni and community members) will sing three works from the Renaissance period.

University Singers will be offering a very diverse program for their first concert of the fall semester. As the Czech/Slovak International Voice Competition is at UW-Green Bay Oct. 13-15, this concert highlights central European selections by Antonin Dvorak, (Goin’ Home), Bela Bartok (Three Hungarian Folksongs) and Bedrich Smetana (the opening chorus of the opera, The Bartered Bride). Other featured works are “Ausz tieffer Noth,” acknowledging the 500 year anniversary of the Reformation; an Italian canzonetta, “So ben mi ch’a bon tempo” and highlights from the favorite musical, The Music Man. The program will conclude featuring student soloists in the gospel rock song, “He Never Failed Me Yet.”
