The McDaniel College Department of Music will present, "Of Wisdom and Folly,” the McDaniel College Choir’s spring concert on Sunday, April 28 at 7:00 p.m. The concert will take place in (Big) Baker Memorial Chapel.
The McDaniel College Choir consists of students Lauren Bass, Nailah Calhoun, Krystina Cespedes, Nick Cloutier,Calea Gelnett, Bryant Gutknecht, Elizabeth Hobbs, Kate Jacob, Rhema Jones, Bernadette Joyce, LJ Kindall, William McCarthy, Waide McComas, Liz Mince, Samantha Nguyen, Anna Odell, Julia Reznikov, Julia Roman, Elise Simmons, Mary Beth Strebel, Danielle Taylor, Sam Trapp, Jen Willard, and Jewoine Wilson.
The choir is led by Margaret Boudreaux, Director of Choral Activities, and David Kreider serves as accompanist. The College’s Madrigal Singers will be featured on several selections and the concert will also feature guest performers Masterworks Chorale of Carroll County and the Washington Cornet and Sackbutt Ensemble.
Boudreaux says, “The concert will celebrate the wide spectrum of human nature - and ways we've expressed both our wise and foolish sides in both poetry and in song. Selections will span from a sublime and splendidly powerful 17th century setting of, “Our Father,” by Michael Praetorius, to the ridiculous, yet challenging, contemporary setting of Lewis Carroll's “Jabberwocky.” We'll take a tour through many styles commenting on life's most perplexing challenges, including Billie Holiday's, “God Bless the Child,” to the ballad, “For Good,” from the show, “Wicked,” to Randall Thompson's timeless setting of Robert Frost's, “The Road Not Taken,” to a very new work in gospel style, “All of Us,” in memory of Matthew Shephard. The concert will end with Peter Lutkin's traditional, “The Lord Bless You and Keep You.’”
This is Dr. Boudreaux's final College Choir concert at McDaniel, after thirty years. She is looking forward to gathering as many alumni as possible for this very full celebratory evening of choral singing.
The concert is free and open to the public. For more information, call 410-857-2599.
