University Chorale presents Spanish cathedral classics

Oct. 19, 2007

KALAMAZOO--University Chorale, Western Michigan University's 38-member international touring choir, will transport listeners the cathedrals of the world at 6 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 28, at Kalamazoo's Zion Lutheran Church, 2122 Bronson Blvd. The program is open to the public free of charge.

"Cathedral Classics: Todo El Mundo (All the World)," will feature Spanish Renaissance composer Tomas Luis de Victoria's "Salve Regina," and other masterworks from England, Germany, South America, and the island nations of Haiti and Cuba.

Conductor James K. Bass, director of choral activities at WMU, shares his vision of the concert: "Imagine yourself in one of the cathedrals of Spain or South America," he says, "and a procession bursts through the doors of the church into the bright sunlight of a large plaza."

The concert will feature four Michigan premieres.
