    The University of Florida Concert Choir will present their spring concert entitled Thinking Chronologically Tuesday, February 21, 2017 at 7:30 pm at the University Auditorium. Thinking Chronologically a musicological journey through choral works representing the Middle Ages, Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, Romantic and Modern artistic style periods. It also features a closing section of lively spirituals and frolicking folksongs. Works by di Lasso, Caccini, Haydn and Brahms will be featured as part of the free and open to the public concert.

    Conducted by Dr. Will Kesling, the concert will also include Arnesen’s exquisite Even When He Is Silent, inspired by a World War II poem about belief inscribed on the wall of a cellar by a Jewish prisoner in a Cologne concentration camp. Audience members will also hear Ešenvalds’ very moving piece, inspired by the American lyric poetess Sara Teasdale’s Only in Sleep.

    The evening’s concerts will carry the audience through seven centuries of music and a myriad of emotions in one hour and fifteen minutes.
