College Choir Fall Concert
Reaching for Unity
Live-Stream available at: 
bit.ly/hcmusicyt


The College Choir, joined by a professional orchestra, will present three pieces on reaching for unity. Felix Mendelssohn’s beautiful Psalm 42 cantata describes a deep longing for connection with God. William Grant Still, nicknamed “the Dean of African American composers,” sets the words of poet Katherine Garrison Chapin in “Plain-Chant for America,” a work premiered in the middle of World War II. This bold piece passionately pleas for national unity through references to historical events. And finally, our student conductor Brendan Sheedy '22 will conduct Gwyneth Walker’s wildly original setting of “How Can I Keep From Singing”, which presents an uplifting vision of humanity. Don’t miss the live-stream of this moving music! (This concert is available by live-stream only.)

In addition, there will be two world premieres – a performance of Dr. Jong Yeoul Chong’s setting of the famous Korean poem “Seo Si” and Katherine Saxon’s inspired madrigal about the unique singing of cicadas, inspired by the Brood X cicadas of this past summer.
