Three St. Norbert College alumni, all internationally famous concert artists, will be featured soloists in the All Saints Day concert, presented annually by the Dudley Birder Chorale in remembrance of deceased residents of the Green Bay community. The concert will be held Tuesday, Nov. 1, at 7:30 p.m. in the Walter Theatre at St. Norbert College.

Soprano Teresa Seidl (Luxemburg, Wis.), tenor Robert Breault (Marinette, Wis.) and baritone Brad Liebl (Luxemburg, Wis.) bring illustrious credentials to the concert: Seidl recently returned to the area after twenty years as the leading soprano with the Munich (Germany) Opera; Liebl currently resides in Johannesburg, South Africa, where he performs with the Cape Town Opera and also serves as professor of opera and voice at the University of Cape Town; Breault is professor of opera and voice at the University of Utah, is a frequent performer with regional opera companies throughout the United States and has also appeared as soloist in concerts and recordings with the renowned Mormon Tabernacle Choir.

Dudley Birder will conduct the 150-voice chorale, 40-piece orchestra and soloists in this special concert, which Birder has designed specifically to display the vocal excellence of the visiting artists, all of them former students of his. The program will consist of Parts I and II of Haydn's The Creation, Gabriel Fauré's famous Requiem and the familiar Panis Angelicus by César Franck.
