KU Choirs to perform for Rainbow Mennonite Performing Artist Series

Monday, October 17, 2011

The Rainbow Mennonite Performing Arts Series will kick of its second season on October 23rd at 4:00pm by hosting three choral groups from the University of Kansas: University Singers, a mixed ensemble under the direction of Emily Krampe; Oread Consort, a mixed ensemble under the direction of David Chavannes; and Men's Glee under the direction of Christopher Krampe.

The Men's Glee will showcase some of the repertoire the group will be performing throughout Eastern Europe next June, including an original, "Pater Noster" by Christopher Crampe. The University Singers will be performing Emma Lou Diemer’s "Three Shakespeare Songs,” and Oread Singers will be performing a new setting of the well-known poem "In Flanders Fields" by Luk Jakobs.

There is no admission charge for Rainbow Performing Arts Series events, although donations are encouraged. The mission of the series is to create opportunities for community members to enjoy the arts and to support artists in their endeavors.

Rainbow Mennonite Church is located at 1444 Southwest Blvd, Kansas City KS. Visit www.RainbowMennonite.org for more information or contact the KU School of Music at 785-864-3436. www.music.ku.edu
