Chamber Singers pay tribute to those who serve
By Gosia Asher.
Tuesday, March 13, 2012—Reprinted from Tri-City Voice.
Ohlone College Chamber Singers present their 12th Annual Masterworks concert honoring the troops that have fought valiantly on the battlefronts for our country. "For Those Who Serve" will showcase a new composition for the choir, entitled "Songs of Love and War" by composer Paul Moravec, which will feature a baritone soloist and trumpet soloist. The text of this composition is taken from four letters to and from American servicemen and their families from the Civil War, World War One, World War Two, and the Vietnam War.
Under the direction of Michael Morris, the award-winning Chamber Singers will also perform an eclectic array of music including famous selections such as the "Missa Brevis K194 in D Major" by Mozart, Beethoven's "Elegischer Gesang," and the mesmerizing "Adagio for Strings" by Barber.
