The Kean University Choir and Chorale to Present Winter Choral Concert

UNION, N.J. ––Dr. Mark Terenzi, chair of the Kean University Department of Music, will lead the University Concert Choir and Chorale in a Winter Choir Concert on Sunday, December 5, at 3 p.m. in Downs Hall located at 1000 Morris Avenue in Union, N.J. Admission is free. Please note the change of venue from Wilkins Theatre to Downs Hall.
The concert will include a professional orchestra with Affiliate Artist Victoria Stewart as concertmaster. ?They will perform four movements from Mozart?s powerful Requiem ? Dies Irae, Rex tremendae, Confutatis, and Lacymosa,? Terenzi said, explaining: ?The great opera composer treats this text dramatically, as the basses, tenors, trumpets and trombones invoke a sense of terror with the thunderous ?Confutatis maledictis? while the sopranos, altos and violins answer just as fervently with the sublime ?Voca me cum benedictis!??

In addition, a delightful setting of Psalm 117 by Telemann for Choir and Strings; seasonal works in Spanish, Yiddish, and Olde English with Kean Affiliate Artists James Musto, marimba, and Christopher Kenniff, guitar; soloists Stephanie Crawford, Leo Campos, Kristen Catena, James Morris, Amelia Singh, MaryGrace Scaturro, Terron Singletary, Joel Tomko, and Jennifer Vaughn, will thrill the audience. A Bach Concerto with pianists Marlenes Luvins and Daniela Suarez is equally certain to enthrall all in attendance.
