Chamber Singers and Bella Voce in Combined Concert

November 6, 2014
Two of Baylor University’s finest small choral groups will join together for a concert on Thursday, November 13, beginning at 7:30 p.m. in Roxy Grove Hall. The 31-voice Chamber Singers are a mixed choir that performs under the direction of Dinah Menger, Lecturer in Choral Activities. The 34-women ensemble known as Bella Voce is led by Lynne Gackle, Associate Director of Choral Ensembles.
This fall concert will open with the Chamber Singers performing sixteenth-century English composer William Byrd’s “Laudibus in Sanctis.”
Then they will sing Jake Runestad’s “I Will Lift Mine Eyes” and Luke Mayernik’s “Kiss Me Softly.” A spiritual comes next, a setting by Alice Parker and Robert Shaw of “I Got Shoes.”
The Chamber Singers will conclude their portion of the program with “Get Away Jordan” by Stacey Gibbs and the William Hawley arrangement of “Not One Sparrow Is Forgotten.”
Opening Bella Voce’s time on stage will be Eleanor Daley’s “Psalm of Praise,” followed by Daniel Hall’s “Reflections from Yad Vashem,” a tribute to victims of the Holocaust.
Also to be heard are Bella Voce’s performance of “I Never Saw Another Butterfly” by Charles Davidson, “Even When He Is Silent” by Kim André Arnesen, and “Regina Coeli” from Josef Rheinberger’s Three Latin Hymns.
Bella Voce will conclude the program with the Paul Carey setting of Daniel Gawthrop’s “Sing Me to Heaven” and David Maddux’s “Tching-Tchinga-Ryah.”
This concert is free of charge and open to the public. For more information, call the Baylor University School of Music at 254-710-3991.
