HSU Madrigal Singers and Mad River Transit Singers
The HSU Department of Music and choral conductor Rachel Samet are excited to present "Night in the City," an eclectic program of choral music ranging from the Renaissance through contemporary jazz on Friday, December 6th at 8:00 p.m. in Fulkerson Recital Hall. Tickets are $10 General, $5 Child, and FREE for HSU Students with ID. HSU's Madrigal Singers will perform a diverse program that includes Elise Witt's "Open the Window," inspired by a Georgia Sea Islands spiritual, Renaissance composer Thomas Morley's madrigal "Sing We and Chant It," Eric Whitacre's "Glow," a dreamlike reflection on the season, and "Esta Noche," a rousing Spanish carol arranged by Andy Beck. The Mad River Transit Singers, HSU's jazz choir, will perform fresh arrangements of standards such as "Cheek to Cheek" and "Love Me or Leave Me," a moving arrangement of singer-songwriter Sarah Tolar's "In the Early Morning Stillness," and Rosana Eckert's take on the sultry tune "Moonray." The program will close with Michele Weir's Latin/funk arrangement of Joni Michell's classic tune "Night in the City." You have never heard Joni Mitchell like this!
