Music Department Ensemble Performances

The UW-Parkside Music Department sponsors numerous evening and weekend concerts. These include ensemble concerts, master classes and performances as well as junior and senior recitals.

Experiencing Choral Treasures commences its second year with the performance of Antonio Vivaldi's "Gloria" for chorus, orchestra, and soloists. The UW-Parkside University Chorale will be joined by Westosha Central High School’s combined concert choir of Salem, WI, director Rob Clark in this performance.

Soloists will be: Joana Jackson and Jane Wermeling. UW-Parkside Director of Choral Activities and Professor of Music, Dr. James Benjamin Kinchen, Jr. will conduct this performance. (Clark, Jackson, and Wermeling are music graduates of UW-Parkside.) The performance will take place on Sunday, December 10 at 3:30 PM in Frances Bedford Concert Hall on the UW-Parkside campus.

The featured work, “Gloria,” takes its text from the Roman Catholic Mass Ordinary, and was composed perhaps in 1715 or 16, or maybe even earlier. It was composed by Antonio Vivaldi (1678-1741), one of the leading composers of the Baroque era and an ordained priest, for performance at a Venetian orphanage. 

Experiencing Choral Treasures was born in 2016 out of the earnest desire to serve regional communities, and specifically, the desire to better serve the high school choral communities within our region. Community service is almost invariably a matter of connecting the institution’s assets with the needs of partners or potential partners in the community.

This event offers high school students the chance to connect with college students and the college environment, the opportunity to do a significant musical work that they may not have attempted on their own, and the chance to sing it with orchestra.

Admissions are $10 for adults; $5 for students.
