Celebrating their 20th anniversary, the UMD Chamber Singers will perform Stravinsky's Les Noces and a specially commissioned work by School of Music alumna Dale Trumbore '09 titled If I Say Yes. The choir will then be joined by alumni of UMD Chamber Singers from the past twenty years in performances of music by Brahms and Schönberg. Beginning at 7:30PM and preceding the UMD Chamber Singers performance will be a brief awards ceremony and a 30-minute performance by the Duquesne University Voices of Spirit.
