Carleton Vocalists Showcased in College Choir Performance

May 17, 2012
By Jacob Cohn '13

Carleton College vocalists will have an opportunity to shine in a concert Friday, May 18 at 8 p.m. in the Concert Hall. The concert, entitled “Let’s Dance!,” will showcase an eclectic range of music about dance, featuring the Carleton Choir (both the Men’s Chorus and Bella Cantemus) and the Carleton Singers. Lawrence Burnett, a professor of music and choral director at Carleton, will conduct. This event is free and open to the public.


“Let’s Dance!” will present a variety of music from many genres. Among the works set to be performed are “Tanzen und Springen” by early Baroque composer Hans Hassler, the “Neue Liebeslieder” waltzes by 19th-century composer Johannes Brahms, and “Creep,” the debut single from the British rock band Radiohead.


The Carleton Choir is run by the music department and placement is by audition. It is subdivided into the Men’s Chorus for men and Bella Cantemus for women, but the choir also performs mixed works. The Carleton Singers are a separate group performing works from a wider range of genres. All Carleton choral ensembles are directed by Lawrence Burnett

This event is sponsored by the Department of Music.
