The ensemble that Fanfare Magazine calls "the premier men's vocal ensemble in the United States” returns to Concordia for a program entitled “Discovery of Sight.” Light is an integral part of life, from controlling our daily habits and cycles, to providing nourishment, warmth, and protection. But what happens when light is taken away, or even restored? We all have experienced our own personal “sunrises” or “twilight hours”. There are even moments in our lives when we recognize the impact of vision in new ways. Including seasoned masterpieces like Richard Strauss’ Traumlicht and Franz Schubert’s Die Nacht, the concert also breaks new ground with Eric Whitacre’s Lux Aurumque and a brand new commission from Gabriel Kahane. At its heart, “Discovery of Sight” revels in the mystery, science, and poetry of what it means to truly “see.”

Students, faculty and staff come together to enact medieval Christmas traditions and the story of Christ’s birth in this moving spectacle, directed by Gerald Dzuiblinski, with musical direction by Brian Altevogt. Beginning in 1978 through the vision of three Concordia professors – Paul Foelber, John Sturmfels and Quentin Marino – the Boar’s Head Festival has become a treasured memory for many. It remains a vibrant and living tradition as it continues to profess the wonder of the Christmas miracle.

Musical Theater Day

The Musical Theatre Workshop is an opportunity for junior high and high school students of all levels of experience to enjoy workshop activities in acting, vocal music and dance, culminating in an informal evening showcase at 7:00pm the same day, that is free for parents and friends of participants.

Taught by Concordia University faculty, working with an accompanist, students will be taken through a variety of exercises, and then be taught a musical theatre number (dance and vocal music), and an ensemble acting scene. Advanced students may bring a musical theatre solo (please provide sheet music in the correct key), or an acting monologue (please bring a copy of the text), which we will help polish, and then will be eligible for performance in the showcase.

Date: Saturday, January 27, 2018
Time: 9:30 AM - 8:00 PM

If you need further information, or have any questions, please contact Director of Theatre, Gerard Dzuiblinski, at gerard.dzuiblinski@cuaa.edu.
