USI Women’s And Chamber Choirs To Perform Fall Semester Concert


    The University of Southern Indiana Women’s and Chamber Choirs will perform their Fall 2022 Concert at 3 p.m. Sunday, October 30 in the second Floor Reading Room of David L. Rice Library. The concert will feature music by Karl Jenkens, Marques, L. A. Garrett, Victor Johnson, Dan Forrest, Jussi Chydenius, Amanda Quist, Gwyneth Walker, Elizabeth Alexander, Daniel Craig and others. Doors open at 2:30 p.m., and the concert is open to the public at no charge.

    “This is a lovely concert of music by modern, living composers who are making a genuine contribution to the choral art,” says Daniel Craig, Associate Professor of Music. “The concert will feature music fitting for a cathedral space along with pieces that speak to the complexities of love and peace in a rapidly changing world.”

    The USI Women’s Choir is an auditioned group specializing in the performance of women’s choral music from every period of music history. The Women’s Choir was founded in 1995 as a mixed voice group but was changed to the current format in 1999 to offer a different type of choral music to the University community. The Women’s Choir performs a concert at the conclusion of each semester and tours to local high schools to perform when academic schedules allow. Membership is open to all women who are interested in creating eclectic music in an artistic environment.

    The USI Chamber Choir was established in 1996 as a part of the continual growth of music at the University of Southern Indiana. Made up of students from all disciplines of study, the USI Chamber Choir promotes the quality performance of exquisite choral music in an artistic setting. The repertory of this ensemble ranges from Medieval Carols and secular pieces to more contemporary settings of liturgical and secular choral music.
