Nov. 6, 2008

KALAMAZOO--Western Michigan University's newest vocal group, the Western Men's Ensemble, will join the 80-member Collegiate Singers in a free concert Monday, Nov. 10.

The show will begin at 8:15 p.m. in the University's Dalton Center Recital Hall.

The Western Men's Ensemble will present a varied set of popular music and spirituals under the direction of assistant professor of music Dr. Ken Prewitt. The program includes arrangements of "Go Down, Moses" and "Mary Had a Baby," among others.

Under the direction of choral director Dr. James K. Bass, Collegiate Singers will perform with both solo instrument and chamber ensemble accompaniment. Selected works for string quartet and choir include Mozart's "Ave Verum Corpus" and the seldom-performed "Elegische Gesang" by Beethoven. Clarinet soloist Bradley Wong, WMU professor of music, will be featured in Rene Clausen's arrangement of "Black is the Color of My True Love's Hair."
