PSU Choirs Perform Mack Wilberg's Requiem April 16 at the Silver Center

PLYMOUTH — The Plymouth State University Chamber Singers and the University Chorale, under the direction of Professor of Music Dan Perkins, will perform composer Mack Wilberg's Requiem at 8 p.m. Wednesday, April 16 in the Hanaway Theatre at the Silver Center for the Arts. The choirs will be accompanied by string orchestra and organ, with PSU faculty member Charles Blood as organist.

Wilberg is an American choral conductor, composer and teacher and current director of the famed Mormon Tabernacle Choir. As music director, Wilberg oversees all musical and creative aspects of the choir, the Orchestra at Temple Square, the Temple Square Chorale and the Bells on Temple Square, including selecting repertoire for concerts, recordings and tours and providing the creative direction for the weekly Music and the Spoken Word broadcast.

Wilberg's composition departs from tradition and uses hopeful texts in place of the more common fearful texts of other requiems, according to Perkins, who was an undergraduate student with Wilberg at Brigham Young University and has always loved his music. Perkins notes that the selection is also a good match for the choirs' upcoming performance at Carnegie Hall on Easter Sunday. Sophomore voice performance and pedagogy major Cody McDonnell of Holden, Mass., and senior music education major Claire Kaiser of Danby, Vt. will be soloists.

Tickets for the concert are $16-14 for adults, $14-12 for seniors and $12-10 for youth at the Silver Center Box Office, (603) 535-2787 or (800) 779-3869. Tickets are also online at silver.plymouth.edu.

Proceeds of ticket sales will support the Chamber Singers' May performance tour to Chile where the students will stay with families of the university students in choirs with which they will collaborate in performance at each location. In preparation for the tour, the students have been studying articles and poetry and meeting weekly with PSU Spanish professor Barbara Lopez Mayhew who will accompany them on the tour.
