The Plymouth State College choirs and the Hanover Chamber Orchestra will combine in concert Saturday, April 19 at 8 p.m. to present Lo the Full, Final Sacrifice.
The concert, which is conducted by PSC Professor Dan Perkins, begins with images of struggle and darkness—the events of Holy Week—and ends with images of light and hope.
Major works include contemporary Estonian composer Arvo Part’s “The Beatitudes,” featuring PSC student organist Robert St. Cyr; Gerald Finzi’s “Lo, the Full, Final Sacrifice,” (for choir and full orchestra) with solos by Elizabeth DeJulio, Chris Covill, Clifton French, Nathan Burcalow and Chris Ryan) and Bob Chilcott’s “Canticles of Light.” Also, Johannes Brahms’ “Alto Rhapsody,” featuring Eva Nagorka, mezzo-soprano, and the men’s voices.
Nagorka is an adjunct faculty member in the department of music, theatre and dance at Plymouth State. A native of Washington, D.C., she is an elegant singing actress and concertist who is a favorite throughout New England.
Tickets are $15 – 5 at the PSC Box Office, 535-ARTS.
