“A Jubilant Song” rings in fall choir season

The Sacramento State Men’s Chorus, Women’s Chorus, Chamber Choir and University Chorus will regale Sacramento with their first performance of the Fall 2006 season on Saturday, Nov. 4 at 8 p.m. in Sacred Heart Church on 39th and J Streets.

The choirs’ “A Jubilant Song” program will offer a wide range of musical styles from each of the choral groups. The University Chorus will sing Ralph Vaughan Williams’ “Serenade to Music” and Eric Whitacre’s “Leonardo Dreams of His Flying Machine,” while the Women’s Chorus will perform Gwyneth Walker’s “I Will Be Earth” and premiers Kate Janzen’s “Love Came Gently,” which was written especially for the Women’s Chorus. The Men’s Chorus will feature works by Rachmaninoff, David Childs and a double-choir composition by Jacob Handl.

The evening will round out with a combined choir performance of William Mathias’ “Let the People Praise Thee, O God,” which was written for Princess Diana and Prince Charles’ wedding and will feature the new organ recently installed in Sacred Heart Church.

The other fall performance of the Sacramento State choirs, “A Procession of Carols,” will also be held at the Sacred Heart Church on Saturday, Dec. 2 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, Dec. 3 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. The program, featuring carols from around the world, candlelit processions and an audience sing along, is a popular local favorite, so buying tickets in advance is strongly suggested.

Tickets for all performances are $10 general, $5 students and seniors. Tickets are available from the Sacramento State Ticket Office at (916) 278-4323 or

For more information, contact Sacramento State Professor and Choral Director Donald Kendrick at (916) 278-6805. For media assistance, contact the Sacramento State Public Affairs office at (916) 278-6156.
