March 10, 2008
The Home Concert of the Catawba Singers will be held at 6 p.m. on Sunday, March 16 in Omwake-Dearborn Chapel at Catawba College. This concert follows the Singers spring concert tour which took them to performance venues throughout the Southeast.
A wide variety of repertoire will be performed ranging from 13th century chant, motets of Palestrina, Scarlatti, Viadana; psalm settings by Handel, Mendelssohn, and Vaughan Williams; two Jewish sacred songs; liturgical music of Rachmaninoff and Orban; and several pieces in jazz style, spirituals and a rocking African-American gospel song. There is something for everyone in this program. The concert will conclude with the new Catawba Singers' theme song, "The Earth Adorned," by Swedish composer Waldemar Ahlen.
