NU Choir hosts Spring Concert

Choral music lovers already know how good the Nevada Union High School choral program is, so we get our tickets early when concerts are announced. The Spring Concert, sung two nights, is no exception. Although all choirs from beginning to advance sing both nights, Tuesday evening will highlight the beginners and May 25 the advanced.

A special treat will be the debut of “Rosa,” a collaborative composition by local composer Mark Vance and the students of the Chamber Choir. This, the first piece ever to be commissioned by the Nevada Union Choral Boosters, explores the controversial yet prudent issue of civil rights and honors the late Rosa Parks.

Money will be awarded, as well. Scholarships totaling $5,000 will be presented on the night of the last concert to both graduating seniors who are planning on studying music in college and NU choir alumni who are majoring in music. This year there are seven recipients – four seniors and three alumni.

If you miss these performances, “Rosa” will be performed at the Chamber Choir Dessert Concert on June 2, 7 p.m., at the Peace Lutheran Church in Grass Valley; $7 at the door.
