Laurentian Singers to Perform Home Concert March 21
St. Lawrence University’s Laurentian Singers will present their Home Concert following their spring break tour, which took the singers to the Caribbean island nation of Trinidad and Tobago. The concert will take place at 8 p.m. on Friday, March 21, in Peterson-Kermani Performance Hall.
The Laurentian Singers will perform a varied program including the complete Liebeslieder Waltzes, Op. 52 by Johannes Brahms for chorus and piano duet. Also on the program are contemporary Estonian composer Arvo Pärt’s “Which was the Son of …,” spiritual arrangements by Moses Hogan and Alice Parker, and several classic and contemporary songs such as “Stardust,” “Killing Me Softly,” Kirk Franklin’s “I Smile,” Billy Joel’s “Lullabye” and K’naan’s “Wavin’ Flag.”
