Chamber Singers Christmas Concert

Where Martin Chapel

Duration 1 hour

EMU Chamber Singers The EMU Chamber Singers will
welcome the Advent-Christmas season with a concert on the theme, “Remember
Forward,” 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 10, in Martin Chapel of the seminary
building at EMU.


The 33-member choir, directed by Dr. Kenneth Nafziger, professor of music at EMU,
will present “Missa Sancti Nicolai,” a liturgical work by Franz Joseph
Haydn with the EMU chamber orchestra, “Magnificat” and “Nunc Diittis” by
Neil Saunders, three Advent motets by K. Lee Scott, “Lord, before this
fleeting season by Libby Larsen and two Spanish carols.


“In this season of December 2009, we offer this concert of music
remembering forward,” said Dr. Nafziger. “The mighty have been brought
down, the low have been exalted. Bridges have carried and will carry
people over troubled water. The new Jerusalem is under construction. The
star still shines. ‘Dona nobis pacem’ still inspires dreams. Light of a
clear blue morning is visible even in the dark. The hungry have been
filled with good things. We have been, are, and will be heard. Alleluia.
The angels’ song, ‘Gloria en las Alturas,’ is still a full-throated shout
for joy.”


Admission to the program is free; donations are welcomed for the EMU music
student scholarship fund.
