University choirs to present 'Gladsome Light' concert March 6

March 1, 2016

Northwestern Oklahoma State University’s Choirs, comprised of the University Singers and the University Chorale, will be performing their “Gladsome Light” concert Sunday, March 6, at 2 p.m. at the First Christian Church of Alva.

The Singers and Chorale will be presenting mostly a cappella works from the last 500 years to present day. Highlights will include Susan Duell, adjunct instructor of music, accompanying Mendelssohn's "Hear My Prayer" with Alex Skinner, Burkburnett, Texas, senior, as soloist, and "Saul," by recently deceased Norwegian composer Egil Hovland, to be performed by the chorale.

“Gladsome Light” is free and open to the public, but donations will be accepted to raise funds for the University Chorale’s anticipated European Tour in 2017.

“There is music of all styles for everyone to enjoy,” said Karsten Longhurst, director of choral studies. “I hope you will come out and enjoy this evening with us.”
