The University Singers under the direction of Michael Slon, present their spring concert on Friday, April 17th in Old Cabell Hall at 8:00pm.
The University Singers is the flagship chorus at UVA, and recently gave acclaimed performances of Handel’s Messiah, Poulenc’s Gloria, Beethoven’s Symphony #9, and Bach’s St. John Passion in Charlottesville. In the past few years, the group has also sung for Les Misérables creators Claude-Michel Schönberg and Alain Boublil during their UVa residency, performed before 20,000 at the 2017 UVA Bicentennial Launch Celebration, and taken a two-week concert tour of England, the Czech Republic, Poland, and Austria. Founded in 1957, the group performs a cappella and accompanied choral literature ranging from chant to major choral-orchestral works, and the works of contemporary composers – including premieres of works by Stephen Paulus, Forrest Pierce, Judith Shatin, and Eric Whitacre.
Recent United States tours have taken the group to Atlanta, Boston, Buffalo, Charlotte, Charleston, Chicago, Cincinnati, Nashville, New Orleans, New York, Orlando, Philadelphia, Providence, and the National Cathedral in Washington D.C. For more information visit: http://music.virginia.edu/usingers.
