10/24/2002 Linfield choirs to present fall concert

McMINNVILLE – Three Linfield College choral groups will present the Fall Choral Concert Sunday, Nov. 3, at 4 p.m. at the McMinnville First Baptist Church, 125 S. Cowls Street.

The concert is free and open to the public. It will include performances by the Women's Vocal Ensemble, conducted by Jackie Van Paepeghem, adjunct professor of music at Linfield; and the Concert Choir and Masterworks Chorale, both conducted by Larry Marsh, Linfield professor of music.

The performance will open with the Women's Vocal Ensemble performing three numbers: an arrangement of "Simple Gifts" by Amy Dalton, a setting of "The Swallow" by Bob Chilcott and "How Sweet the Moonlight Sleeps" by Robert Young.

The Concert Choir will follow with a set of four selections. They will perform "Buccinate in Neomenia Tuba" (Blow the Trumpet in the New Moon), a double choir piece from the Renaissance by Giovanni Croce; "All That Hath Life and Breath" by René Clausen featuring a soprano solo by Linfield junior Traci Johnson; a modern setting of "Ave Maris Stella" by Trond Kverno; and "Wade in the Water," a familiar spiritual arranged by Moses Hogan featuring soloist Erika Sandberg, Linfield junior.

The program will conclude with the Masterworks Chorale singing Fauré's "Requiem" featuring soloists Van Paepeghem, soprano, and Greg Abbott, baritone. Kathryn Ganske will provide the accompaniment.
