The Raritan Valley Community College (RVCC) Chorale will present its spring concert on Friday, April 25, 2014, at 8 p.m. The performance will be held in the Welpe Theatre at the College’s Branchburg Campus.
The evening will feature music written by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in 1791, the last year of his life. The program will include Mozart’s Ave Verum Corpus, K. 618, as well as selections from his opera The Magic Flute, K. 620 and from his unfinished Requiem Mass, K. 626, including the “Lacrimosa,” the last music Mozart ever wrote.
Also on the program will be two selections conducted by student conductor Devin McGuire. As part of his RVCC Honors College capstone project, McGuire will conduct O Vos Omnes by Tomas Luis de Victoria and Thou Lovely and Beloved by Robert Young. The program will finish with four traditional hymn tunes from the American shape-note tradition.
