Augustana Choirs Present: A Light of Song, Virtual Concert
The Augustana Choirs and Music Area Faculty present: A Light of Song – a Virtual Concert for the Season
Join the Augustana Choirs and Music Faculty as they present a virtual concert of music from this most distinctive of fall-terms. Hosted LIVE by our Director of Music, Ardelle Ries, and Director of Choral Activities, John Wiebe, this concert will celebrate our spirit with music for choirs, solo-voice, piano and guitar. We will present performances by all three of our Augustana choirs, led by director John Wiebe, as well as performances by members of our Music Area faculty, Ardelle Ries (Director of Music), Roger Admiral, Charlene Brown, Joy-Anne Murphy, Inna Luzanac, and Trevor Sanders.
Included in the concert is Earth Song, by Frank Ticheli, from which we draw the inspiration for both our efforts this semester, and for our concert title:
“…but music and singing have been my refuge,
and music and singing shall be my light.
A light of song, shining and strong: Alleluia!”
The annual December choral concert at Augustana is a deeply cherished tradition and one that will be especially missed this year. And though we acknowledge the loss of in-person concert events, we want to make a special effort to celebrate the resilience of our students and community members who continue to study and share their songs.
