The Baylor University Women's Chorus will present its spring concert at 8 p.m. Thursday in Jones Concert Hall in the McCrary Music Building. The director of the Women's Chorus is John W. McLean Jr., assistant professor of choral activities, and Joanna Elliott is accompanist.

The concert will open with "Jubilate Deo" by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, "O Salutaris" by André Caplet, "A Short Alleluia" by Irving Fine, "Beau Soir" by Claude Debussy and "Nun Fanget An" by 16th-century German composer Hans Leo Hassler.

Joining the Women's Chorus in the next set of pieces will be the women of the Baylor University Concert Choir. This combined 91-voice choir will perform a group of "Choral Duets" by Robert Schumann, Robert H. Young's "For Thy Sweet Love" and Sven Lekberg's "Let All the World in Every Corner Sing."

The Women's Chorus will sing Randall Thompson's "Come In" and "A Girl's Garden," both led by graduate conductor Jeffrey V. Lindquist. The program will conclude with Henry Thacker Burleigh's arrangement of the spiritual "Ride On, King Jesus" and George Gershwin's "Clap Yo' Hands."

The concert is free and open to the public.
