LEXINGTON, Ky. (Sept. 27, 2013) — The University of Kentucky Chorale will present its Masterworks Concert this weekend in Lexington. The 2013 Cathedral Concert Series kicks off at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 29, at the Cathedral of Christ the King, located at 299 Colony Blvd. The concert, featuring Benjamin Britten’s "Rejoice in the Lamb" and the diverse choral works of J.G. de Padilla, Arvo Pärt, Ivo Antognini and Stacey Gibbs, is free and open to the public. 

 

This Masterworks Concert features a choral motet from the Mexican Baroque, works from well-known 20th and 21st century composers, and a new spiritual written by American composer Stacey Gibbs, of which the UK Chorale will present the Kentucky premiere. The centerpiece of the concert, Benjamin Britten’s “Rejoice in the Lamb,” on a text by 18th century poet Christopher Smart, is a virtuosic and challenging work for chorus, soloists and organ, which has a well-deserved place in the choral repertoire.

 

UK Chorale is the premier mixed choral ensemble at the UK School of Music in the UK College of Fine Arts. It consists mostly of upperclassmen and graduate students. While a majority of the singers are music majors, there are a number of other academic disciplines represented. Their distinctive artistry spans a variety of genres, styles, and historical periods. The 44-voice ensemble has been the recipient of regional and national awards, touring extensively with recent performances in Italy, France, Washington, D.C., New York City and the Bahamas. Locally, UK Chorale performs large-scale masterworks regularly with the UK Symphony Orchestra and the Lexington Philharmonic Orchestra.

 

For years, the UK Choirs have made a commitment to acts of service within the Lexington area and each member takes great pride in serving and inspiring the community. The Cathedral Concert Series is just one way the UK ensembles serve the Bluegrass.
