CANTON, Mo. – Enjoy musical mastery in combined forms as Culver-Stockton College choral and instrumental ensembles join for two very different concerts. On Nov. 11 at 7:30 p.m., the Symphonic Band and the Concert Choir will perform a joint concert in the Alexander Campbell Auditorium. In addition to various other works, the Symphonic Band will feature Joshua Koehler, senior music major from Jackson, Mo., in Claude T. Smith’s virtuosic work: Fantasia for Alto Saxophone and Band. The Concert Choir will perform classics by Mendelssohn and Paul Manz along with exciting new music by Frank Ticheli and Edwin Fissinger.
On Sunday, Nov. 13 at 3 p.m. in the Alexander Campbell Auditorium, the combined choirs accompanied by members of the wind ensemble will present a performance of Arthur Honegger’s oratorio King David. This piece created a sensation in Paris in 1921, enjoying a run of sold out performances every night for three months! Honegger, one of an important group of French composers active in the early twentieth century known as “Les Six,” makes use of a variety of styles in this work, including jazz and theatrical melodrama.
All of these concert events are free and open to the public. For more information about any event, contact the C-SC Division of Fine Arts at firstname.lastname@example.org or (573) 288-6413. More information is also available at www.culver.edu.
