50th Anniversary Celebration

Alice Millar Chapel, freewill offering

Rodrick Dixon, narrator; Alice Millar Chapel Choir, Stephen Alltop, conductor; University Singers, Emily Ellsworth, conductor; Northwestern University Symphony Orchestra; Eric Budzynski, organ

Preceded by the glorious strains of Louis Vierne’s Marche triomphale for brass, timpani, and organ, the world premiere of Joseph Schwantner’s Chapel Music: Five Diverse Songs for Chorus and Orchestra will display the composer’s extraordinary imagination for musical color in a work for mixed chorus, solo flute, brass, tuned goblets, percussion, and strings. Rounding out this celebratory evening is Schwantner’s stirring New Morning for the World, based on texts by Martin Luther King Jr. 

Admission is a freewill offering.
