Chamber Singers will present a concert featuring living composers. The concert is titled “Miracles,” text by Walt Whitman, after the song composed by senior music education student Drew Firkins (’19) for the choir. Every song then refers to a miracle as life is full of them whether we look to the stars (“Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” arranged by Daniel Elder), share our love with others (“Let My Love Be Heard” by Jake Runestad), celebrate the prophecy of a mysterious birth (“A Light” by Carlos Simon), or keep our spirits uplifted in the midst of adversity (“My Soul’s Been Anchored in the Lord” arranged by Marques L. A. Garrett). In line with UNL regularly celebrating new music, most of the composers represented were born after 1980.

The Chamber Singers, directed by Marques L. A. Garrett, is the UNL’s vocal chamber ensemble. A small choir of 14-18 voices, it is intended to provide the highest level of choral chamber-specific performance experience for graduate and undergraduate singers at the Glenn Korff School of Music and throughout the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. The ensemble is open to music-majors and non-majors alike. The choir explores a broad range of repertoire specializing in literature for unaccompanied and contemporary small vocal chamber ensembles; including works from early music eras as well as contemporary literature, and new music composed expressly for them. Typically, the ensembles has explored seminal music from Chant to 1650 during the fall term, and music by emerging and living choral composers during the spring term.

Free and open to the public.
