Ada —

The East Central University Singers, University Chorale, Wind Ensemble and Women’s Chorus will perform a concert on Monday, April 22, at 7:30 p.m. at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Ada.

Begrabnisgesang (Burial Song), Opus 13, will be performed by the Wind Ensemble and ECU Singers. Written by the 19th-century master Johannes Brahms, Opus 13 is one of the very few examples of a composition written for wind ensemble and mixed chorus.

The Singers will perform Austrian composer Michael Haydn’s Petite et Accipietes (Ask and You Will Receive, John 16) with the assistance of Dr. Starla Hibler, professor of music. Also, the Singers will perform a recent setting of O Magnum Mysterium (O Great Mystery), a responsorial chant from the Matins of Christmas by the contemporary choral composer Dr. Z. Randall Stroope of Oklahoma State University. O Magnum Mysterium was copyrighted in 2010.
