Dudley Birder Chorale to Present 43rd All Saints Day Concert

From St. Norbert College, October 14, 2016
by Matthew Matuszak, matthew.matuszak@snc.edu, 920-403-3089

The Dudley Birder Chorale will present its annual All Saints Day Concert in the Walter Theatre of the Abbot Pennings Hall of Fine Arts on the St. Norbert College campus, on Friday, Oct. 28, at 7:30 p.m.

The concert, which originated 43 years ago, is performed each year in memory of deceased members of the greater Green Bay community.

The concert will feature Vivaldi's "Gloria" and Rutter's "Requiem," to be accompanied by a special instrumental chamber ensemble including Roza Borisova (cello), Adam Gaines (trumpet), Andrea Gross Hixon (oboe), Tammy Naze (harp), Jacob Roseman (flute), James Robl (percussion) and Jeffrey Verkuilen (organ). Hixon, Robl, and Verkuilen are members of the St. Norbert College music faculty.

Soloists for the concert include soprano Courtney Sherman, professor of music at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, and mezzo Linda Feldmann, a St. Norbert College instructor of music.

As is traditional for the annual concert, the program will conclude with the reading of names in a candlelight ceremony to celebrate living and departed saints, and a performance of "For All the Saints." "How Lovely is thy Dwelling Place" from Brahms' "Requiem" will be performed in memory of the late Marshall K. Moss, a former professor at St. Norbert College.

The 150-voice chorale will be conducted by Dudley Birder, and accompanied by a 40-piece orchestra composed of members of the Green Bay Symphony.
