College Choir performs its spring tour program in campus concert

The College Choir tour program is a collection of exciting, dramatic, though-provoking and fun music for a cappella chorus. Exquisite madrigals by Claudio Monteverdi and Thomas Morely are coupled with the tempestuous and playful French choruses from “The Lark,” by Leonard Bernstein. An ensemble committed to understanding between people of different cultures, College Choir sings sentimental, humorous, spiritual and celebratory music from folk traditions of the Americas, Europe and the Far East. A Spiritual arranged by Middlebury’s Francois Clemmons is prelude to two works by Kirke Mechem, “I Know What the Caged Bird Feels” and “Everyone Sang,” settings of poetry by Paul Lawrence Dunbar and Siegfried Sassoon that capture musically both the pain of persecution and the triumph of freedom.
