Dudley Birder Chorale Presents 41st All Saints Day Concert

From St. Norbert College, October 17, 2014
by Erich Wegenke, erich.wegenke@snc.edu, 920-403-3089

The Dudley Birder Chorale will present its annual All Saints Day Concert in the Walter Theatre at the Abbot Pennings Hall of Fine Arts on the St. Norbert College campus, on Saturday, Nov. 1, at 7:30 p.m. Originated 41 years ago, the concert is performed each year in memory of deceased members of the greater Green Bay community.

The concert will feature Mozart's "Coronation Mass" and John Rutter's "Requiem." Also included will be "Turn Back O Man" by Gustav Holst, "Cantique de Jean Racine" by Gabriel Fauré and "Only Begotten Son" by Alexander Gretchaninoff, in addition to a special, newly orchestrated arrangement of St. Norbert College composer-in-residence Blake Henson's "God of Music, Guide Our Song," commissioned last year by the Chorale to celebrate its 40th anniversary.

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."

Soloists for the concert will be soprano Courtney Sherman, professor of music at University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, tenor Robert Breault, professor of opera and voice at the University of Utah and frequent soloist with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, and St. Norbert College professors mezzo Linda Feldmann and baritone Kent Paulsen.

The 150-voice Chorale will be conducted by Dudley Birder, and accompanied by organist Jeffrey Verkuilen and a 26-piece orchestra composed of members of the Green Bay Symphony.

Tickets are available at the St. Norbert College Box Office, which can be reached by calling 920-403-3950 or 800-762-2699 or visiting tickets.snc.edu. All seats are reserved.
