The University of Maine Singers and Oratorio Society will perform at 3 p.m. Sunday, April 29, with the Bangor Symphony Orchestra in its concert “C’est Magnifique!” at UMaine’s Collins Center for the Arts.
The UMaine groups will perform composer Gabriel Faure’s “Requiem,” a major cornerstone of the choral repertoire, along with soprano Sarah Wolfson and baritone Andrew Wentzel. BSO Music Director Lucas Richman will conduct.
The University of Maine Singers, led by music professor and choral music director Dennis Cox, is an advanced concert choir whose members come from all disciplines across campus. The ensemble tours in the northeastern U.S. each spring and travels to Europe every four years. The group regularly performs with the Oratorio Society, directed by Ludlow Hallman, and is a mixed choral ensemble comprising university students and members of the community. The Oratorio Society performs large choral-orchestral master works.
The rest of the French-themed program includes Debussy’s “Petite Suite” and Ravel’s “Le Tombeau de Couperin.”
