NU choirs to present annual spring concert

Carol Feineman

The second of two Nevada Union High School Choir spring concerts is tonight at the Don Baggett Theatre.

Miners Chorus, Ensemble and the advanced Concert, Chamber and Choir Quartets, all conducted by Rod Baggett, will perform.

The Chamber Choir will present a composition made possible through an American Composers Forum grant. The lyrics to “Days of Our … Choir” was written by choir members; local composer Mark Vance put the words to music.

Other songs include the traditional African piece “Sinbongayi”; the Balinese monkey chant “Tjak”; and the contemporary classical “Water Night,” featuring tone clusters of 14 notes sung together.

The concert begins at 7 tonight. Tickets, available at the door only, are $5 for adults and $3 for students.

Seventy-five percent of concert proceeds go to the NU Choir Boosters Club Scholarship program, which gives approximately $6,000 in music scholarships to high school seniors planning to major or minor in music and to alumni who are majoring in music. The other 25 percent helps pay for new attire, buses, music and festival and seminar fees.

Call the choir department at 273-4431 for more information.
