Mixed Choir Concert
PLATTEVILLE-As the final choral performance for the spring semester, the University of Wisconsin-Platteville Choir will perform a mixed concert. The concert will be held at 3 p.m. on Sunday, May 4, in the Richard and Helen Brodbeck Concert Hall in the Center for the Arts.
The first group performance will include works about "a matter of life or death" sung by the Chamber Choir. Robert Demaree will direct the group.
Greg Dennis will direct the other two performances. The Concert Choir will be performing spirituals such as "Ride the Chariot" and "Calm as the Night." The group will also perform a piece composed by Pierre LaPlante, a native of Blanchardville, entitled "Pinery Board." The selection is about a man who rides logs down the Mississippi River and drowns.
The University Singers will perform the spirituals "Let Me Fly" and "Give Me Jesus." The highlighted piece for the group is about the poem written by UWP faculty member, Dr. David E. Miller, called "Towers" which is in reference to the Sept. 11 tragedy.
This event is free and open to the public.
