The men's choirs from both Brigham Young University and BYU-Idaho will perform a joint concert entitled "Brothers, Sing On!" in the Barrus Concert Hall March 7.
As the largest collegiate men's chorus in the nation, the 190-member BYU Men's Chorus directed by Rosalind Hall performs a multi-faceted program of classical pieces, hymns, spirituals, popular and traditional arrangements. As a result of hours of dedicated rehearsal, the chorus enjoys being one of the most popular BYU choirs, with their performances selling out weeks in advance.
The BYU-Idaho Men's Choir conducted by Kevin Brower features approximately 125 singers. The Men's Choir repertoire ranges from barbershop to Gregorian chant, from sacred hymns and spirituals to the best of Broadway and Hollywood, and from serious classical music to popular a cappella. In addition to performing independently, the Men's Choir combines regularly with the Women's Choir for special performances. Highlights from past include singing for sessions of LDS General Conference and the annual BYU-Idaho Barbershop Festival.
The concerts begin at 6 and 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $5 for BYU-Idaho students and $10 for the general public. Tickets may be ordered by phone at 496-2230 or online at www.byui.edu/tickets.
