Musicians collaborate for Psalmfest II

Singers in Pittsburg State University's choral program will collaborate with members of the Southeast Kansas Symphony and other local musicians to present Psalmfest II at 3 p.m. on Sunday, May 7, in Pittsburg's First United Methodist Church. This free event will conclude the choral program’s 2005-2006 performance schedule.

Susan Marchant, director, said Psalmfest II is a "celebration of the rich and glorious tradition of setting Psalm texts to music."

The concert will include works drawn from six centuries of choral literature. The performances will be diverse, as well, and will range from a cappella chamber ensembles through the full resources of a 100-voice choir. The composers represented in the program include Handel, Telemann, Geisler, Gallus and several contemporary compsers.

In addition to Marchant, Psalmfest II will also feature conductors Timothy Henderson and Scott Allison, soprano Jessica Dold, pianist Gulimina Mahamuti, and organist Susan Laushman.

The First United Methodist Church of Pittsburg is located at 5th and Pine streets. For more information, please contact the PSU Department of Music at 620-235-4466.
