Northern Michigan University's Department of Music will present its NMU Choral Invitational Concert at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 18, in Reynolds Recital Hall. The performance will feature choir students from Wausaukee middle and high school and Ishpeming and Calumet high schools. Those students will have spent the day visiting NMU's campus and rehearsing with Director of Choirs Erin Colwitz.
In addition to performing their own sets of songs during the evening concert, the middle and high schoolers will perform with the NMU Arts Chorale. They will perform “A Great Big Sea” by Lori-Anne Dolloff, which is a song accompanied by a fiddle. They will also perform “The Seal Lullaby” by Eric Whitacre and “All My Heart Shall Sing with Joy!” by Greg Gilpin.
“Seeing the high schools showcased at Reynolds Recital Hall is a fun experience,” said Colwitz. “I am certainly looking forward to the large group pieces. It is a thrill for the middle and high school students to sing with a large ensemble and with college students.”
The Arts Chorale will also perform a set in the concert, including “Man in the Mirror” by Michael Jackson, “When David Heard” by Norman Dinerstein and “Si Ch'io Vorrei Morrire” by Claudio Monteverdi.
Admission is free and live streaming will be available here.
