In a concert titled “OUR SEASON’S CHANGING LIGHT,” music is chosen to reflect change, progress, and unity.

Special guest high school choir, from Bellevue East High School, under the direction of UNL alum, Dr. Marjorie Simons-Bester, will contribute to the center portion of the performance and join all choirs with a new version of the classic text “Let All the World in Every Corner Sing.”

For UNL’s All-Collegiate Choir, the central work is Howard Hanson’s “Song of Democracy.” The choir will also perform music of American composers, Aaron Copland, Laura Farnell, and Brent Pierce.

University Singers will perform Daniel Elder’s “October Sun,” Ola Gjeilo’s “Evening Prayer,” and a seminal English madrigal “Draw On, Sweet Night,” by John Wilbye.

Under the current director, Dr. Peter A. Eklund, University Singers, the University of Nebraska–Lincoln’s premiere and historic flagship choral ensemble, presents the finest and most versatile choral singers in the entire University. While many of the choir’s singers are music majors, students from throughout the University are encouraged to audition and participate. This ensemble performs music from the thirteenth century through the present, including works written especially for it.

All-Collegiate Choir is comprised of University of Nebraska-Lincoln students as well as singers from the Lincoln area. This group performs large-scale works with orchestral, organ, and piano accompaniment, including many popular choral favorites. It also is frequently asked to sing in combination with other choirs on campus and in the community.

Free and open to the public.
