'Americana Concert' by choral groups; Visiting artist Rodell Rosel to perform April 23

April 17, 2012

Musical talent from Northwestern Oklahoma State University’s Concert Choir, University Singers and University Chorale will perform an “Americana Concert” at the First Baptist Church, located at 714 College Ave., in Alva on Monday, April 23, at 7:30 p.m.

This event is free and open to the public.

Songs from American composers will be showcased by the 80-person chorus. Genres include folk, Broadway show tunes and traditional music.

“It will be a night of the best of American music,” said Dr. Irene Messoloras, assistant professor of music and Department of Fine Arts chair.

Featured visiting artist and Grammy-nominated Filipino tenor, Rodell Rosel, also will present a recital that night. Rosel made his debut at the Lyric Opera of Chicago in 2005. His most recent accolades include a successful Metropolitan Opera debut as Valzacchi in Strauss’ Der Rosenkavalier and later as Nathanael in Offenbach’s Les contes d’Hoffmann.

Messoloras encourages the public to attend this night of American music.
