Transylvania University choir to perform at conclusion of winter tour

LEXINGTON, Ky.—The 38-member Transylvania University Choir will perform at Transylvania at the conclusion of their winter tour. The performance, which is free and open to the public, is Friday, January 11, at 7:30 p.m. in Carrick Theater.

The choir will perform in four cities in four days on their winter tour, including Raceland, Kentucky; Baltimore, Maryland; Falls Church, Virginia and Williamsburg, Virginia.
Selections for the performance will include Go Where I Send Thee, a gospel spiritual; Let Me Be Like Mary; Samuel Adler’s Seasons of Time, as well as classic pieces O Magnum Mysterium and Gloria tibi, Domine.

The members of the choir who perform in Transylvania’s annual Madrigal dinner will also present a selection of music from the Christmas season in Medieval England.

Under the direction of Gary Anderson, Transylvania professor of music and director of choral ensembles, the choir toured Austria, Hungary and the Transylvania region of Romania in May 2006 as part of Transylvania’s innovative May term. They gave concerts in Vienna and Krems, Austria, Budapest and Szentendre, Hungary and Sibiu, Romania, in the Transylvania region. In 2003, the choir toured Russia, Finland and Sweden. Continental tours are scheduled during the years when the choir does not travel abroad.
