NU Singers To Present
Christmas Carol Concert
The University Singers, under
the direction of Dr. David Foltz,
will present their annual Christmas
Carol Concert on December 9, in
the Union Ballroom.
Two performances have been
scheduled, at 3 and 4:30 p.m.
As a college choir, the Singers
are similar in quality to the best
professional and college choirs m
the country. The group was organ
ized approximately fifteen years
ago. This past September, however,
the group was reorganized ilito a
symphonic concert tour.
The structure of the choir is
formed about the idea of matched
mixed quartets. Each group of four
is blended within itself, then all the
quartets are voiced to each other
to form the desired sound. The situ
ation demands independence from
each voice. The new organization
creates gratef tonal unity and pre
cision of articulation.
Mr. Leon Lishner, Mr. Jack
Snider, and a brass ensemble will
be featured along with the Singers.
The concert includes, "Fanfare
for Christmas Day," Shaw; "Break
Forth, 0 Bethlehem Town," a tra
ditional Bohemian carol; "Carol of
the Drum," a Czech carol; "Carol
of the Doves," a Polish j carol;
"touro Louro Louro," a French
carol; 'Hushing Carol," a con
temporary carol; "I Saw Three
Ships," an English carol; "Three
Carols," Warlock; "Five Modern
istic Carols," Gross; . "The Snow
Lies Thick," Robert Beadell.
