The choir’s 2017 spring concerts will be May 12 and 13 at 7:30 PM in Salt Lake City’s beautiful First Presbyterian Church (South Temple and ‘C’ Street).  The program will feature some of the world’s greatest classical songs–including the transcendent “God Is My Shepherd ” and “Nacht und Träume” by Franz Schubert, Sergei Rachmaninoff’s dramatic “Spring Waters,” and the evocative “Ku-loc” (Cow-keeper call) by Norwegian master, Edvard Grieg.  The choir will also conduct its traditional survey of outstanding world music with visits to Scotland, Ireland, France, Slovakia, Norway, Japan, Mexico, and Brazil–including a revival of  the choir’s own exciting setting of the Irish reel, “Follow Me Down to Carlow” and Stephen Hatfield’s international hit arrangement of the Mexican huapango, “Las Amariillas.”  Returning to American shores, the choir will sing “I Left My Heart in San Francisco” and will conclude the concert with its own calypso number, “Down by the Seashore,” followed  by “Little Lamb” and “A Day in Spring.”–both by the director.

General Admission: $10.00 ($6.00 students) and admission limited to those age 6 and older. Tickets at Day Murray Music or at the door.  Additional information at 801-537-1412
