Description

Caltech's Orchestra and Glee Club will join each other for their final concert this season.  This event will take place on Friday, May 20th, and Saturday, May 21st in Ramo Auditorium at 8:00 pm on the Caltech campus. 

The program will be the same for both nights.

The Glee Club will be singing:

  • the Gregorian chant "Salve Regina,"
  • Renaissance motets by Palestrina and Viadana,
  • Brahms Four Gypsy Songs (Opus 112),
  • Fauré "Cantique de Jean Racine", as well as
  • Hungarian, Tamil and American folksongs.

The Orchestra will perform:

  • Mendelssohn's "Calm Sea and Prosperous Voyage" Overture, and
  • Glazounov's Violin Concerto, with senior Calvin Kuo as soloist. Calvin is one of this year's Student Concerto Competition winners.

Together, they will perform Handel's Coronation Anthem No. 1, "Zadok the Priest" and the Beethoven Cantata "Calm Sea and Prosperous Voyage" (Opus 112). 

Both the Mendelssohn overture and the Beethoven cantata were inspired by Goethe's poem, which is one of the classics of German poetry.

The concert is free and open to the public.
