Evening Prayer...Bedtime Stories - Sunday, April 18, 2010

University Chorale

Nicole Aldrich, director Kelly Butler, assistant director

Sunday, April 18, 2010, 7:30 pm Dekelboum Concert Hall

Nicole Aldrich and Kelly Butler conduct the University Chorale in their performance of a program entitled Evening Prayer...Bedtime Stories. The Chorale, a 50-voice choir that specializes in music from all periods and frequently collaborates with the National Symphony Orchestra, will perform pieces by Mozart, Rheinberger, Vaughan Williams, Rutter, Goodheart, and López-Gavilán. The works on this program combine the traditional Catholic evening prayer service, the Vespers, with the telling of bedtime stories and fairy tales.
