The 40-voice Shasta College Chorale, under the direction of Elizabeth Waterbury, will be presenting a concert of two major works of recent composition on Saturday, May 16, in the Shasta College Theatre.
“Lux Aeterna” is by the Los Angeles based composer Morten Lauridsen. This popular work will be accompanied by Ellen Southard on piano. This choral music has been called “contemplative and profound.”
The second work is the “Dorchester Canticles” by the New York composer Tarik O’Regan. Audiences will enjoy the percussion part played by Caryn Corbin, including many coloristic instruments. The harp will be played by Candace LiVolsi and the organ part by Ellen Southard.
Tickets are $7.00 and $5.00 for seniors and students. Tickets are available in advance through the College website, or at the door. For further information, please contact Dr. Elizabeth Waterbury, Director of Choral Programs, at 530-242-2367.
