The program includes Gastoldi’s “Amor Vittorioso,” Finzi’s “My Spirit Sang All Day,” Pachelbel’s “Jauchzet dem Herrn,” Badings’s “La nuit en mer and Soir d’été,” and Mascagni’s “Regina Coeli (from Cavalleria Rusticana)” and Mechem’s “Papageno and the Prince.”
The concert will feature solo piano works of Chopin, performed by Badami, instructor of piano and accompanying, including From Etudes, Op. 25: No. 1 in Ab major, No. 2 in F minor; and Scherzo in B minor, Op. 20.
The Low Brass Ensemble also will perform two brass works, “Royal Fanfare” by Robert Langenfeld and “Lyric Piece” from Suite for Trombone Ensemble by Michael Hennagin.
The Madraliers chamber ensemble, conducted by Dr. Brian Lanier, associate professor of music, is a select choir of 38 undergraduate and graduate students who perform a variety of repertoire ranging from music of the Renaissance to contemporary composers.
The Madraliers have been invited to perform for the Missouri Music Educators Association’s 74th Annual Conference and Workshop in January and for the American Choral Directors Association Southwest Division Convention in March.
