Summer Sings 2006 finale features Mozart
The University Musical Society wraps up its 13th season of the popular Summer Sings choral reading event at 7-9:30 p.m. July 31 in Auditorium 4 of the Modern Language Building. All singers are welcome to this no-audition, no-performance night of fun and music.
Summer Sings offers an opportunity for music lovers to sing great choral repertoire with special conductors and outstanding soloists. Each session is only $5, which covers the scores and refreshments.
In honor of Mozart’s 250th anniversary the season will continue with some of his works. Some of the featured pieces are Mozart’s “Coronation Mass” conducted by Paul Rardin, associate director of choirs at the School of Music, Theatre & Dance; Gabriel Faure’s “Requiem,” conducted by Jerry Blackstone, director of choral activities at U-M; and Mozart’s “Reqiuem” conducted by Hugh Ferguson Floyd, director of choral ensembles and associate professor of choral conducting at Oberlin College Conservatory of Music, and director of choral activities at the Interlochen Arts Camp.
Registration for each session begins at 6:30 p.m.
