March 30, 2019 - University Auditorium - 7:30 pm
The Gainesville Master Chorale is proud to present works from two of the most popular composers of our time, Dan Forrest and John Rutter. The concert will be in the University Auditorium at 7:30PM on Saturday, March 30.
Dan Forrest’s Lux: The Dawn From On High (2018), for soprano and tenor soloists, chorus, and orchestra, explores various facets of Light (Lux). The work also features the grand organ in the UF Auditorium. If you heard Dan Forrest’s Requiem for the Living we presented a few years ago, you will know Forrest’s luscious musical score will be a salve for the soul.
John Rutter’s Feel the Spirit (2001) is a set of seven well-known African-American spiritual arrangements. The spiritual suite is very much in the musical idiom of George Gershwin (Porgy and Bess). Featuring a guest soloist, orchestra, and the Master Chorale, Rutter showcases the rich heritage of the spiritual.
The concert is conducted by Dr. Will Kesling. It is a must hear!
