MHC and UVA Glee Clubs will Present Fall Concert

The Mount Holyoke College Glee Club and the University of Virginia Men’s Glee Club will combine to present a fall concert on Saturday, November 8, at 8 pm in Abbey Chapel. The evening will include varied choral music, from classical composers Benjamin Britten and Gabriel Fauré to Billy Joel.

Directed by Catharine Melhorn, Hammond-Douglass Professor of Music, and assisted by local professionals Teresa Mango (harp), Jean Jeffries, and Christine Mortensen (horns), the MHC Glee Club will perform Brahms’s Four Songs, Op. 17, a gorgeous work with an abundance of Romantic images: unattainable love, a death wish, and ancient Celtic lore.

Melhorn also will direct the combined ensembles in Britten’s cantata Rejoice in the Lamb, based on unusual texts by Christopher Smart, accompanied by College organist Larry Schipull, associate professor of music. The Virginia Glee Club will sing Latin motets, a contemporary work by Ron Jeffers, the traditional folksong “Shenandoah,” and Billy Joel’s “Lullaby.” Conductor Frank Albinder, in his first season with the Virginia Glee Club, also directs the Washington D.C. Men’s Camerata and, for 11 years, sang with the internationally renowned male vocal ensemble Chanticleer. He will also conduct the combined glee clubs in Fauré’s Cantique de Jean Racine. The concert also will include a song from Zimbabwe, recently arranged and coached by Fulbright researcher Jennifer Kyker ’02.

The event is free and open to the public.
