HSU Madrigal Singers and Mad River Transit Singers
Please join the Humboldt State University Department of Music and choral director Rachel Samet as they present "Bring Me Sunshine," an eclectic program of music from the Renaissance through contemporary jazz featuring HSU's Madrigal Singers and Mad River Transit Singers on Sunday, May 5th at 8:00 p.m. in Fulkerson Recital Hall. Madrigal Singers will perform repertoire including the wry English madrigal "April is in my Mistriss' face," along with a rousing Kenyan song of gratitude, "Kawuouno Wan Gi Pi," and Aaron Copland's delightful arrangement of "Simple Gifts," conducted by student Ryan Coder. Mad River Transit Singers, HSU's jazz choir, will perform standards such as "Cry Me a River," along with some classic tunes in fresh new arrangements, including Matt Falker's Afro-Cuban take on Cole Porter's "I Get a Kick out of You," and Kirby Shaw's fantastic a cappella arrangement of the Ray Charles tune "Unchain My Heart." $10 General, $5 Child, $5 HSU students with ID.
