Thomas DaviesCal Poly Choirs Winter Concert: Conductor's Choice

Saturday, March 4, 2017
8 p.m., Harman Hall, Performing Arts Center

The Cal Poly Choirs will perform favorite works of Thomas Davies, the university's retiring director of choral activities and vocal studies, for the Winter Concert. 

Titled "Conductor's Choice," the concert — a spin down memory lane of the choirs' choral library — will feature PolyPhonics and the University Singers. The choirs will be accompanied by Susan Azaret Davies and Paul Woodring. 

PolyPhonics' program will include "Cry Out and Shout" by Knut Nystedt, "Trois Chansons" ("Three Songs") by Claude Debussy, "O Tod, wie bitter bist du" ("Oh, Death, How Bitter You Are") by Max Reger, and other favorites by Randall Thompson and Norman Dello Joio.

The University Singers will sing Gabriel Faure's "Cantique de Jean Racine" ("Hymn of Jean Racine"); selections from "Songs of Innocence" by Earl George; and works for men's and women's choruses, including some barbershop.

Davies' final on-campus concert with the Cal Poly Choirs will be on June 11.

Tickets ($12 and $14 general, $9 and $12 students)
