Kantorei and University Choir Concert
The first Kantorei concert of the year is tonight, and its my first time performing with this U of Iowa choir, so I'm very excited. I'm particularly thrilled that we're performing two songs by contemporary composer David Biedenbender: "Herbst" and "Lösch mir die Augen aus," on texts by Rainer Maria Rilke. These pieces are not easy, but they are so expressive and the poetry is simply gorgeous.
Tonight's joint concert of Kantorei and the University Choir is at 7:30 p.m., Friday, Oct. 19, at the Iowa Memorial Union in Iowa City and is free.
