UH-Hilo choirs sing spring on April 27

The University of Hawaii at Hilo choirs will present their spring choral concert, “We Sing the Spring,” at 2 p.m. Sunday at the UH-Hilo Performing Arts Center. The Kapili Choir and the University Chorus are conducted by Amy Horst and accompanied by Walter Greenwood on piano.

“We Sing the Spring” presents a sampling of favorite choral selections, ranging from Hassler’s “Cantate Domino” to Copland’s arrangement of “Zion’s Walls,” and brings to life choral music from religious, secular and folk traditions, including works by Passereu, Zaninelli, Spavacek, Theron Kirk and the Manhattan Transfer.

The concert also includes new repertoire. Student conductor Chris Tomich will lead the Kapili Choir in two songs by contemporary Finnish composer Jaakko Mäntyjärvi, and the University Chorus will present songs by present-day composers Sally K. Albrecht and Jay Althouse.

Tickets are $7 for general admission, $5 for discount tickets, students with a valid ID and children ages 17 and younger and are available 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Tuesday through Friday at the box office on school days.
