Come, Sweet Death

Monday, March 2, 2020 at 7:30pm

Galvin Recital Hall

A. J. Keller, conductor; Jack Reeder, graduate assistant conductor; Charles Foster, accompanist

Join the University Singers for their mid-season concert, in a program examining the truth of mortality through the art of centuries past. This program explores the concept of death through different perspectives from composers of various time periods, religious beliefs, and musical aesthetics, brought together thematically through the use of Bach’s setting of the chorale Komm, Sußer Tod. Each of the five verses are followed by choral works elaborating on the theme of each verse. Featured composers include Purcell, Byrd, Brahms, Schütz, Randall Thompson, and David Lang.    

Tickets are $6 for the general public and $4 for students with valid ID.
