Madraliers to present Nov. 12 concert

Northwest Missouri State University’s Madraliers will present their fall concert at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 12, in the Charles Johnson Theater at the Olive DeLuce Fine Arts Building.

The concert, which is free and open to the public, will showcase choral music ranging from the Renaissance to the 21st century.

The first portion of the concert will feature early works by Claudio Monteverdi and John Dowland. Contemporary music works by Alice Parker, Howard Helvey, David Childs and Peter Wilhousky also will be performed along with a piece by Lithuanian composer Vaclovas Augustinas. 

The second part of the program will feature a musical parody, “The Grasshopper,” by Joseph Clokey. The final work of the evening will be “Christmas Cantata” by Daniel Pinkham, an exciting piece accompanied by organ and brass quartet. 

The Madraliers choral ensemble is a select group, consisting of 35 undergraduate and graduate students and representing a variety of disciplines and majors at Northwest. In the spring, the same students become Celebration, the show choir for the University. 

The ensemble will present its 42nd Annual Yuletide Feaste Dec. 11-12 on the Northwest campus.
