For their Fall 2017 Concert, the UCSB Chamber Choir, under the direction of Grey Brothers, and the UCSB Women’s Chorus, under the direction of Tyler Reece, will perform "Choral Reflections," a concert of meditative sacred music from various traditions by composers of diverse backgrounds. The Women's Chorus program will highlight Karl Jenkins' Adiemus, Ernani Aguiar's Salmo 150, Libby Larsen's While We are on Earth, and Jocelyn Hagen's Moon Goddess, and will include music by Gerald Cohen, Robert De Cormier, Joan Szymko, and John Rutter.  The Chamber Choir will perform favorites including Ola Gjeilo's Ubi caritas, Morten Lauridsen's O magnum mysterium, and Ernest Bloch's Silent Devotion and Response from Sacred Service, as well as more adventurous repertoire by Arvo Pärt and Gabriel Jackson. Knut Nystedt's Ave Maria, a virtuosic piece for solo violin and a cappella chorus, will anchor the performance. Friday, November 17, 2017 at 7:30 p.m. at Trinity Episcopal Church (1500 State St.).
 
About the UCSB Choirs
 
The UCSB Chamber Choir is an outstanding ensemble of music majors and non-majors, comprised of 36 of the best singers from the UCSB campus. Specializing in virtuosic a cappella choral music from the Renaissance to the 20th century, the group has collaborated with the Ericson Chamber Choir from Stockholm, Madrigalchor Kiel from Germany, the Santa Barbara Chamber Orchestra, the Santa Barbara Symphony, and the Asia-America Symphony Orchestra in Los Angeles. The Chamber Choir undertakes frequent international concert tours, and has twelve CD recordings to its credit. 
 
A dynamic group of music majors and non-majors, the UCSB Women’s Chorus draws its membership from some 20 departments across campus. The Women’s Chorus performs the main repertoire for women's voices, including a cappella and accompanied works, often with unusual combinations of instruments. The Women’s Chorus has been featured on four CD recordings with the UCSB Chamber Choir, including Carl Orff’s "Carmina Burana".
