Celebrate the changing season as Utah State University’s Chamber Singers present “Autumn Voices” Thursday, Oct. 11, 7:30 p. m., at the USU Performance Hall.

 

The evening features the USU Chamber Singers, led by director of choral activities Cory Evans, and the University Chorale and Women’s Choir, led by director of special programs with the Caine College of the Arts, Michael Huff. The choral ensembles will be joined by band members from “Out of the Blue.”

 

“The evening will have a decidedly autumn feel, including striking décor and lighting, with tunes that celebrate the season, including ‘Autumn Leaves,’ Earth, Wind, and Fire’s ‘September’ and the harvest hymn ‘Come, Ye Thankful People, Come,’” said Evans.

 

The Women’s Choir will also perform Bob Chilcott’s “Little Jazz Mass” and Karl Jenkins’s “Adiemus,” as well as an arrangement of “Jonah” by American composer Rollo Dilworth.

 

The USU Chamber Singers will perform the regional premiere of Paul Mealor’s “Ubi Caritas,” performed at the recent wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, and the USU Chorale will perform hits from “Mary Poppins: The Musical” and the upbeat gospel tune “Praise His Holy Name.”

 

Tickets are $10 for general admission, $8 for seniors and youth, $5 for USU faculty and staff and free for USU students with ID. Tickets can be purchased at the Caine College of the Arts Box Office located in room 139-B of the Chase Fine Arts Center, online at the college website or by calling 435-797-8022.
