The Concert Choir will do motets by Ockeghem, Hassler, and Rachmaninoff, plus a work by Ysaye Barnwell and an Indian raga arranged by Ethan Sperry.  The big centerpiece of their set is John Corigliano's Fern Hill, his setting of Dylan Thomas's extraordinary poem.  They’ll be joined on the Corigliano by Laura Nichols, mezzo-soprano soloist and voice faculty at Macalester.  Michael McGaghie directs.
