We’ve got two more days of the semester left here at BYU with finals next week. Here in the School of Music though, we like to get everything done BEFORE finals, so these last two weeks it’s been a sprint to finish everything before deadlines. I only really have three classes: Music Research Techniques, Counterpoint and Conducting Lessons, but getting everything done has been a challenge.
Our last day of class is tomorrow (Wednesday) which also happens to when my choir (University Chorale) is singing our final concert. This also happens to be my graduate recital. No pressure right? It’s at 7:30 in the de Jong Concert Hall in the Harris Fine Arts Center. Tickets are $3 and we’ve got something for everyone. Here’s a re-post of our program.
Gloria (from Missa in Tempore Belli “Paukenmesse”) Josef Haydn
The Light of the World
O nata lux Thomas Tallis
Christ the Lord is Risen Today arr. Joseph M. Hoffman
O Thou that art the Light Gabriel Jackson

No. 9 “Am Donaustrande”
(On Danube’s border)
No. 11 “Nein, Es Ist Nicht Auszukommen”

No. 15 ”Nachtigall, Sie Singt So Schön”

We’re hoping for a large-ish crowd. Anyway, that’s what I’ve been focusing on lately. After this is off to Colorado with BYU Singers!
