CCM presents the UC Men’s and Women’s Choruses and Cabaret Singers in concert at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, March 6, in UC’s Corbett Auditorium. Olga Artemova, Michael Fuchs, Steven Berlanga and Sarah Baker conduct. Tickets are on sale now.

Special guests for the concert include the Cincinnati Children’s Choir (CCC) Girl Choir and the Little Miami Select Women’s Chorale and Select Mixed Choir. In celebration of the 100th anniversary of composer Benjamin Britten’s birth, the CCC Girl Choir and the UC Women’s Choir will perform his Missa Brevis in D, Op. 63.

Repertoire for the Men’s choir will include a commissioned work entitled Victory! by Joshua Chai, Director of Choral Studies at Concordia University in Austin, scored for men’s chorus, brass quintet and percussion. This performance will also feature CCM’s Brass Without Borders ensemble.

The Men’s Chorus program will include pieces with a variety of origins from around the globe: arrangements of Bright Morning Star, a Kentucky folk song; Star of County Down, an Irish folk song; an Indian Raga titled Ramkali; and an excerpt from Russian composer Sergei Rachmaninoff’s Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom.

Finally, the choirs will come together to sing He’ll Make a Way by Los Angeles native Byron J. Smith and Eliza Gilkyson’s Requiem, arranged by prominent choral conductor Craig Hella Johnson.

The evening promises a wide variety of choral styles with sounds from the current day and centuries past.
