The Men's Choir, led by Professor of Church Music Randall Bradley, will perform "Oh, Sing Jubilee to the Lord" by Brad Holmes and then, with John Romero as soloist, "Dúlamán" by Michael McGlynn.
Associate Director of Choral Ensembles Lynne Gackle will conduct the Concert Choir in "Pilgrim's Hymn" from Dan Davison's Three Hermits and Randy Haldeman's arrangement of the French folkdance "Verdurõn."
Dr. Gackle will also lead Bella Voce, a chamber ensemble of women's voices, in two pieces. This group will sing Ola Gjeilo's "Tundra" and a setting by Donald Patriquin of the Canadian folksong "Ah! Si mon moine voulait danser."
