MSU hosts In a Dark Time.
Coming to the Kasser Theater stage on Saturday, April 25 at 8 p.m. is sure to be another amazing performance by the Montclair State University Singers and Chorale, conducted by Heather J. Buchanan, performing In a Dark Time.
According to the Peak Performances website, “Heart-rending, soulful choral music that explores the emotional spectrum: anguish, fear, hope and equanimity. MSU Singers repertoire will include Donald McCullough’s The Eye Begins to See, a two-movement setting of Theodore Roethke’s poem In a Dark Time scored for mixed chorus, piano and cello. MSU Chorale will perform the chamber accompaniment version of Annelies by James Whitbourn, the first major choral setting of Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl. Featuring guest artists Adriana Zabala (mezzo-soprano), KeriAnn DiBari (B-flat clarinet), Elena Chernova-Davis (violin), Katherine Cherbas (violoncello) and Steven W. Ryan (piano).”
Holocaust survivor Ruth Ravina will also give a pre-concert presentation in the Leshowitz Recital Hall from 7 to 7:30 p.m.
Food options are available on campus as well at the Red Hawk Diner that is open all night. It is located on the far side of the campus.
