Birmingham-Southern Concert Choir to present annual Homecoming Concert April 4

BIRMINGHAM, Ala.—The Birmingham-Southern College Concert Choir will present its annual Homecoming Concert on Sunday, April 4, at 2:30 p.m. in the Hill Recital Hall on campus.

The program will include two major works. “Lux Aeterna,” composed in 1966 by the Hungarian composer György Ligeti, is a choral tour de force and one of the most important such works of the 20th century. It is perhaps best known as part of the soundtrack to the film “2001: A Space Odyssey” directed by Stanley Kubrick. “Fern Hill,” a setting of the poem of Dylan Thomas by American composer John Corigliano, also will be preformed. Other works on the program include selections by Mozart, Palestrina, and arrangements of spirituals.

The concert is free and open to the public.

The BSC Concert Choir recently returned from its annual spring break concert tour, which this year included performances in Montgomery, Dothan, Pensacola, Mobile, and other locations.

All events are free and open to the public, with the exception of the luncheon. To register for the luncheon or for other event details, contact Domcekova at 226-4975.
