Mount Marty Choral Union Announces First Full Season Events
The Music Department at Mount Marty College is pleased to announce the first full season of the Mount Marty Choral Union. Rehearsals begin on Monday September 9th, 7-8:30pm, and will continue on Monday nights at that time. Rehearsals will be located in the Bistro Second Stage space on the first floor of Bede Hall (Bede 127). The Choral Union is looking for new singers, 9th grade and older - all are welcome to come and sing.
The first Choral Union concert, "Britten's Centennial," will be on November 22nd, at United Church of Christ in Yankton at 7:30pm. The Choral Union will perform "Festival Te Deum," "Hymn to St. Peter," "Hymn to St. Columbus," and "Jubilate Deo." The Mount Marty College Chamber Choir will join the concert to perform several Britten selections and will then join the Choral Union in singing "Rejoice in the Lamb."
The Choral Union will host a community "Messiah Sing" on Sunday, December 1st at 4pm, again at the United Church of Christ in Yankton. The orchestra, soloists, and choruses from "Part the First" and the "Hallelujah Chorus" scores will be available for purchase or loan for that concert. All are invited to partake in the experience of being in a Messiah chorus.
In the spring the Choral Union will then participate in a fundraiser for the Mount Marty College Music Department, with a portion of the proceeds going towards the final concert of the season. This will be an evening of musical theater medleys, solos, food, and fellowship.
The season will come to an end with Haydn's "Creation," on Saturday, April 26, 2014 performed by the orchestra, soloist, and the combined voices of the Choral Union and the MMC Mixed Choir. This is a concert not to be missed.
