A Virtual Grand Night for Singing

 

The U-M School of Music, Theater and Dance, along with UMS and the UMS Choral Union, present an amazing evening of music theatre, choral music, and solo vocal performances that celebrate the power of community and connection.

The evening features staged performances from the archives and new virtual performances that highlight the broad vocal talent at the U-M and in our Ann Arbor community. Repertoire selected will include both traditional songs that speak to our need for communal singing such as I was glad by Sir Charles Hubert Parry and How Can I Keep from Singing (arr. by Karen Thomas), as well as new social justice songs such as Alysia Lee’s Say Her Name and Melanie Demore’s Lead with Love that seek to raise awareness about police brutality and anti-racism in the United States.
