“This performance features our most advanced vocal ensemble on campus that includes some of the finest singers at the university,” said Dr. Michael Fuchs, director of choral activities at UW-Superior. “This 40-minute concert includes a wide variety of high-quality choral music which probes the depths of human experience.”

While including an assortment of choral music, the central piece of the evening by the American composer Dominick DiOrio titled “Down Deep,” is a work honoring the legacy of the Little Rock Nine. In this ten-minute piece for unaccompanied chorus, DiOrio uses the words from members to tell their exceptional story and explore their struggle for equality, justice, and civil rights.

The concert will also feature a penitential Psalm setting by the Italian baroque composer Antonio Lotti, “Miserere Mei” and a recently composed work by Dale Trumbore that explores the relationship with time. The concert will conclude with a setting of the spiritual “Walk Together, Children.”

Tickets, which can be purchased with cash or check at the door, are $5 for adults, $3 for seniors and free for students. Thorpe Langley Auditorium is located in Old Main, 1710 Weeks Ave. For questions or additional information, call (715) 394-8115 or email music@uwsuper.edu.
