Bob Chilcott Brings ‘Music to Hear’ to Cache Valley Two Performances April 26

 

                LOGAN — Utah State University’s Department of Music at the Caine College of the Arts welcomes Bob Chilcott, internationally acclaimed composer and conductor. During his stay in Logan, Chilcott will perform at the Cache Valley Choirfest and with the USU Choirs.

 

                The Cache Valley Choirfest concert  is April 26 at 4 p.m. in the Kent Concert Hall in the Chase Fine Arts Center. The festival includes 11 children’s choirs performing individually and together as the CVC Mass Choir. Cache Children’s Choir, the hosting choir, commissioned Chilcott to create a new work for the festival. He will conduct the CVC Mass Choir in the world premiere of “Music to Hear,” accompanied with a text by Shakespeare.

 

                Later, also April 26, Chilcott will perform with the USU Chamber Singers, USU Chorale, USU Women’s Choir and Cache Children’s Choir at 7:30 p.m. in the Performance Hall.

 

                Chilcott, a former member of the King’s Singers, has more than 125 pieces published by Oxford University Press. In 2002, Chilcott was appointed principal guest conductor of the BBC Singers. In 2015, he will also conduct the American Choral Directors Association National Men’s Honor Choir in Salt Lake City.

 

                Tickets for the first concert April 26, the Cache Valley Choirfest, are $8 adults and $5 for students age 8 and up. Tickets for An Evening with Bob Chilcott are $10 general admission, $8 seniors and youth, $5 USU faculty and staff and free for USU students with ID.
