YSU Dana School of Music presents the Dana Spring Choral Concert, “Love, Laugh, Longing, Harmony, and Praise,” as part of its Choral Masterworks Series on Monday, March 27 at 7:30pm at the Boardman United Methodist Church. The featured ensembles will be the Dana Chorale, directed by Hae-Jong Lee, and Voices of YSU, directed by Adam Howard.
The evening’s program includes some of the most enduring and beloved choral masterworks from the Renaissance to contemporary composers. Selections will consist of classics such as Thomas Morley’s ‘My bonny lass she smileth,’ an English madrigal, Palestrina’s ‘Sicut cervus,’ Brahms’ ‘Geistliches Lied,’ Faure’s ‘Cantique de Racine,’ Haydn’s ‘Awake, the Harp’ from the oratorio The Creation, and many more. The concert concludes with an uplifting song inspired by the West African saying, “It takes a village to raise a child.” The music embodies the cultural concept behind the proverb – all the individual parts are linked and working together to create and support the whole.
Admission is free and open to the public. More information is available by calling the Office of Community Engagement and Events at 330-941-2346.
