The program, led by Kym Scott, assistant professor and director of choral activities, will feature WVU’s Chamber Singers, Women’s Choir, Men’s Chorus and the West Virginia Community Choir.
“This concert features a mix of pieces guaranteed to help you shake that winter frost off your bones,” Scott said. “From classical pieces by Mozart to songs by American music pioneer Aaron Copland and more modern numbers from various regions of the world, there’s a great mix of warmth and joy in this concert.”
The concert will include several pieces that the WVU Chamber Singers will take with them on tour to Ireland in May including “Mid-Winter Songs” by Morten Lauridsen. The student singers are excited to share American music with their Irish audiences.
“The opportunity to sing in multiple venues throughout Ireland is an experience many performers never have,” Scott said. “It is important to me to offer to our students musical and cultural experiences that give them a broader view of the world.”
The concert is open to the public and WVU students receive free admission with student ID. General admission tickets can be bought through the WVU Box Office by calling 304-293-SHOW.
