Missouri S&T choirs will present their spring concert at 2 p.m. Sunday, April 19, in Leach Theater of Castleman Hall. The Chamber Choir and the University Choir will perform under the direction of Lorie Francis, a lecturer in the arts, languages and philosophy department at S&T.

The program is comprised of the students’ top choices from pieces they submitted and voted on last semester.

The Chamber Choir will open with “Festival Sanctus” from the “Missa Festiva,” by John Leavitt. The choirs will combine to form the Miner Choir Guild to perform “O My Luve’s Like a Red, Red Rose,” by Rene Clausen and “Daemon Irrepit Callidus,” by Gyorgy Orban. “The Phantom of the Opera (Medley),” by Andrew Lloyd Webber will feature many of the choir members as soloists, followed by “Ce Grand Matin,” arranged by Emile Desamours, who is also a civil engineer.

After intermission, the choirs will shift gears to perform “Unforgettable,” by Irving Gordon; “The Lion Sleeps Tonight,” arranged by Mark Brymer; “Trickle, Trickle,” by Clarence Basset; and “Seasons of Love,” by Jonathan Larson. The performance will conclude with selections from “Mama Mia.”

Accompanist for the choirs is Scott Brendler, a senior in architectural engineering.
