Linfield choral concert to celebrate the sound of music

Linfield College choirThree Linfield College music groups will present a fall choral concert, “The Sound of Music,” Sunday, Oct. 27, at 3 p.m. in the Richard and Lucille Ice Auditorium in Melrose Hall at Linfield. 

The program will feature Linfield’s Concert Choir, Cascara Voce and Wildcat Men’s Glee Club. They will perform an eclectic array of pieces by William Byrd, Edward Elgar and Henry Purell, as well as songs from “The Sound of Music.” 

The Linfield College Concert Choir is the premier choral organization at Linfield. This select group was the first such ensemble in the Pacific Northwest. The choir has toured every year since its formation in 1930, and has performed at state, regional national and international conferences. 

The Wildcat Men’s Glee Club and Cascara Voce offer students and staff from across campus and the community the opportunity to sing and perform a wide variety of literature written for male and female voices throughout the year. They occasionally combine to perform repertoire for mixed voices. 

The concert is free and open to the public. For more information call 503-883-2275 or visit linfield.edu/arts.
