FSU Chamber Singers to Present Three Area Concerts in December
Frostburg State University’s Department of Music will present its Chamber Singers in three concerts this December – the first, Johann Sebastian Bach’s “Magnificat,” on Sunday, Dec. 3, at 6 p.m. at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, 15 N. Smallwood St. in Cumberland, Md.; the second on Saturday, Dec. 9, at 7 p.m. at Ashby’s Fort, 227 Dan’s Run Road in Fort Ashby, W.Va.; and the third, “Lessons and Carols,” on Friday, Dec. 15, at 7 p.m. at St. Michael’s Catholic Church, 44 E. Main St. in Frostburg, Md. The concerts are free and open to the public.
In the context of vespers for the first Sunday of advent, the FSU Chamber Singers will perform Bach’s liturgical masterpiece, “Magnificat, BWV 243,” in the context it was meant to be heard. Featuring choral singing, soloists and a small group of instrumentalists, this performance is a terrific beginning to the holiday season. “Magnificat” is a musical setting of the biblical canticle “Magnificat.” It is the first major liturgical composition on a Latin text by Bach and one of his most popular vocal works.
The Chamber Singers will visit historic Ashby’s Fort for their next concert. Experience an evening of music and entertainment, featuring a wide variety of repertoire and holiday favorites at the first fort George Washington ordered constructed in Virginia during the French and Indian (or Seven Years’) War.
Finally, the FSU Chamber Singers will team up with the musicians of Divine Mercy Catholic Parish to present an evening of song in preparation for the celebration of Christmas. Traditional favorites will blend with modern masterpieces for an evening to remember.
