Songs of the Season, Saturday, December 12, 2015

Songs of the SeasonJoin the choirs of Michigan Tech as they present a concert entitled Songs of the Season. The concert will have a mixture of contemplative and celebratory music, featuring selections ranging from 16th century Spanish carols, to contemporary settings of favorite Christmas songs.

The Michigan Tech Chamber Singers, conScience, along with guitarist Pat Valencia, will perform Alf Houkom’s setting of an old Gaelic rune, entitled the “Rune of Hospitality” —a particularly poignant selection considering contemporary world events.

The Michigan Tech Concert Choir, accompanied by Leslie Dukes, will perform masterworks from the choral canon, including J.S. Bach’s “Lobet den Herrn,” and Francis Poulenc’s “Quem vidistis pastores dicite.”

The show will be at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Rozsa Center for the Performing Arts.

Tickets for the “Songs of the Season” concert are on sale now, $13 for adults, $5 for youth, and no charge for Michigan Tech students with the Experience Tech fee. Tickets are available by phone at 7-2073, online or in person at the Central Ticketing Office in the Student Development Complex.
