Northwestern Vocal Music Program to Present Masterwork Concert Feb. 28

February 22, 2023

Masterwork Concert 23

The Northwestern Oklahoma State University vocal music program will present its Masterwork Concert at 7 p.m. on Feb. 28 at the First Baptist Church located at 714 College Ave. in Alva.

Dr. Karsten Longhurst, director of choral studies and assistant professor of music, said the concert will feature the University Concert Choir, Chorale, Singers and Dr. Eduardo Moreira, assistant professor of music, on piano.

The concert will feature works by Beethoven, Brahms, Faure, Haydn, Jake Runestad, Undine Smith Moore, Christopher Harris and Jason Max Ferdinand.              

The choirs will highlight Beethoven, a piece highlighting Beethoven’s struggle in coming to terms with losing his hearing. Some pieces were previously performed by the Northwestern choir students with six other colleges at the intercollegiate choir in Tulsa as part of the Oklahoma Music Educators Association.

There will be no admission cost to attend, but donations are graciously appreciated.
