Chamber Choir and Collegium Musicum Novum Perform “Ritual, Mystics, and Icons”
The chamber choir and collegium musicum novum will perform a concert of reflective music on Tuesday, Mar. 19, from 7:30 p.m. Titled “Ritual, Mystics, and Icons: Vocal and Instrumental Chamber Music of the 20th and 21st Centuries,” the concert will take place in Stauffer Chapel, Malibu.
The chamber choir was created for the purpose of preparing a variety of challenging music for the smaller ensemble. Students are encouraged to develop the technical science of music and vocal production together, advance the science of transforming the composer's intentions into an inspiring art form, and engage the University's mission by sharing the gift of music as a Christian service to society.
Meanwhile, the Collegium Musicum has served Pepperdine and the general community as a highly selective, artistic and educational ensemble of singers and instrumentalists. This diverse group of student musicians has performed music from the outermost edges of the concert repertoire, playing early music from Dunstable to Mozart, as well as works of 20th century and contemporary masters from Messiaen to Pärt. Calling Stauffer Chapel its home, the Collegium has also performed internationally, performing Henrich Schütz's profound Die Sieben Worte Jesu Christiam dem Kreuz in Heidelberg's Providenz Kirche.
