Michigan Tech choirs to present "Songs of the Season" Dec. 12

HOUGHTON -- The choirs of Michigan Tech will present a concert titled "Songs of the Season" at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 12, in the Rozsa Center. The concert will have a mixture of contemplative and celebratory music, featuring selections ranging from 16th-century Spanish carols to contemporary settings of favorite Christmas songs.

The Michigan Tech Chamber Singers, conScience, along with guitarist Pat Valencia, will perform Alf Houkom’s setting of an old Gaelic rune titled "Rune of Hospitality" -- a particularly poignant selection considering contemporary world events. 

The Michigan Tech Concert Choir, accompanied by Leslie Dukes, will perform masterworks from the choral canon, including J.S. Bach’s Lobet den Herrn and Francis Poulenc’s Quem vidistis pastores dicite.

Tickets for the "Songs of the Season" concert are on sale now: $13 for adults, $5 for youth, and no charge for Michigan Tech students with the Experience Tech fee. Tickets are available by phone at 487-2073, online at or in person at the Central Ticketing Office in the Student Development Complex.
