ASU Chorale: A Tribute to Beethoven

7:30pm CDT April 4, 2013

Cactus Hotel, 36 E. Twohig Avenue

The Angelo State University Chorale with Chamber Orchestra presents an All-Beethoven concert including solos from former students of long-time ASU professor, Dr. Eldon Udell Black. Featured soloists are: soprano Patti Wetzel, alto Coralie Wetzel, tenor Stephen Sloper, and baritone Mark Cooper.

The program opens with Beethoven’s Mass in C, a 40-minute sacred work in the Viennese classic style of Beethoven’s mentor and teacher, Franz Josef Haydn.

Closing selections highlight Beethoven’s most familiar choral melodies, including the lyrical folk-hymn “O Sanctissima,” triumphant “Ode to Joy” from Symphony No. 9, and celebrated “Hallelujah” from “Christ on the Mount of Olives.”

The event is open free to the public.

Widely considered to be among the greatest, if not the greatest composer of Western music, Beethoven composed some of the most innovative and enduring music ever written.

Accompanying the Chorale are members of the Permian Basin string quartet and ASU music faculty.

Dr. Pamela Lee, professor and director of choral activities at ASU, conducts the performance.
