Three Manchester University choral groups are coming together for a spring concert designed to lift the heart.
"Dance, Dance My Heart" will feature three choral ensembles: A Cappella Choir and Chamber Singers conducted by Debra Lynn, MU director of choral music; and Cantabile conducted by Scott Avery.
“The concert will include music from an array of styles and time periods – everything from madrigals to jazz,” Lynn said. “There should definitely be something for everyone!”
The performance is 3 p.m. Sunday, May 10, in Cordier Auditorium on the North Manchester campus. Admission is free and open to the public.
Mikautadze Dance Theatre from Fort Wayne will join the Chamber Singers to perform Four Motets by Aaron Copland.
“They are an innovative dance company whose modern style is based on techniques developed by legendary dancer-choreographer, Martha Graham,” Lynn said. “This will be our second collaboration with them.”
Cantabile will also have a guest flute, bass and drums in its portion of the program.
About the groups
