The Quincy University Music Program will perform “Moments” choir concert on Sunday, October 6, at 3 p.m. at the Connie Niemann Center for Music located at QU’s North Campus (17th and Seminary Rd). The concert is free and open to the public.
Under the baton of Amy K. Stollberg, director of choirs and accompanied by pianist, Laura Kammerer, the three choirs will perform songs that represent various “moments”. The Concert Choir will sing four selections including “Dusk,” a poem by Sara Teasdale and composed by Michael John Trotta and Beverly Patton’s “Exaudi! Laudate!” Joining the choir for Craig Courtney’s four-hand piano arrangement of “I’ll Fly Away” is Ann Behrens, Ed.D., retired QU vice president of academic affairs. Soloists are Brenden Nelson, a senior graphic design major from Quincy and Austin Kohlhepp, a junior music performance major from Hannibal, Mo.
The eight-voice, Vocalocity, will sing two selections, “Oye Como Va,” made famous by Carlos Santana in 1970, and “Seasons of Love” from the Broadway musical Rent.
The auditioned Chamber Choir will perform several songs including Jacob Narverud’s “Lunar Lullaby” and “The Road Not Taken” from Randall Thompson’s, “Frostiana”. Behrens will once again join the choir for Clifford King’s four-hand arrangement of the Russian lullaby “Bayu, Bayushki, Bayu”.
There will be a 50/50 raffle drawing as a fundraiser for our Study Abroad trip to Austria in May 2021.
