Conductor, UMD Men's Chorus Greg Graf
The UMD Women’s & Men’s Choruses will present works from diverse composers and styles. The Women's Chorus will perform songs of home, which can hold various meanings—love, for instance, such as the one found in Rise up, My Love, or community, as in the one formed by Sudanese women trying to live-through in Famine Song. Finally,it can also mean a return to the earth, as in The Road Home.
Highlights from the Men’s Chorus portion of the program include Amy Beach's famous Sea Fever, Billy Joel’s classic, The Longest Time, and the traditional spiritual Rainbow 'Round My Shoulder. The UMD Men’s Chorus will also perform Anton Bruckner’s Inveni David with trombone choir.
