“Come Together”, Choir Performance

April 15 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Campus Hall Music Performance Center

Join us for Dr. Roger Wesby’s final concert as a conductor of Wagner College Choirs. The Chamber Singers and Stretto vocal ensemble will offer a special concert in celebration of their work this year. The program will be richly varied and also rich in Beatles tunes and Americana. The program includes works by renaissance master Palestrina, settings of the Song of Solomon by Healey Willan, Edward Bairstow and Carson Cooman, the exquisite Trois chansons of Debussy, evocative nocturnes by Samuel Barber and Eriks Esenvalds, and an imaginative and entertaining experiment in sound by Jake Runstadt. Beatles offerings will include Come together, Yesterday, Eleanor Rigby, Michelle, and She said she said. The bluegrass-tinged Americana will include Down in the River to Pray, Come, Holy Spirit, Come and Unclouded Day. The concert will conclude with a gospel song and a spiritual.
