The UW-Stout Symphonic Singers and Chamber Choir will mark the end of the semester with a concert that considers one of humans’ age-old questions: Time.
The groups will perform their spring concert at 7 p.m. Friday, April 27, at Our Savior's Lutheran Church, 910 9th St. E., Menomonie. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased in advance at the Memorial Student Center, 715-232-1122, online and at the door.
The concert, “A Matter of Time,” examines the idea of passage of time in the eyes of poets, composers and comedians. Selections include a set of musical birthday presents, music inspired by clocks and eternity.
Featured composers include Bach, Chatman, Henry VIII, Mechem, Morley, Barnum and many more. “There Was a Time” is from Eric Barnum of UW-Oshkosh. The composer of the four-movement “Time Pieces” is former Madison resident Stephen Chatman.
Ten members of the choirs are seniors and will be graduating Saturday, May 5. They are:
- Alexandra Fischer, of Sussex
