Details:
Mar. 17, 7:30 pm  -  Saint Patrick's Day
Join us for a very special free concert featuring the Grinnell Singers as they take us through some of the most thrilling musical compositions in the last five centuries.



Grinell Singers Cantius

The Grinnell Singers, a select choral ensemble from Grinnell College in Iowa, present Respice, a concert spanning five centuries, with music ranging from the simplest hummed tune, to what is one of the world’s most intricate and complex musical construction, Thomas Tallis’s 40-part motet, Spem in Alium. The Singers will also present three selections from Rachmaninov’s All-Night Vigil, and distinctive works by Nils Lindberg, Eric Whitacre, Frank Martin, Richard Bjella, and James MacMillan. The Grinnell Chamber Singers will present a danceable Cuban piece by Guido Gavilán, a Lorca setting by Carmen Cavallaro, and a wordless song by the director, John Rommereim.

About the Grinnell Singers



The Grinnell Singers are a group of people who are highly diverse in terms of their backgrounds, interests, and talents, but who are united in their love of singing and their dedication to the choral art. They perform music from an extremely wide variety of traditions and locales, -- from Brahms to Bluegrass, from Renaissance England to twenty-first century New York. The Singers have completed tours to Finland, Estonia, Russia, the Czech Republic, Romania, Bulgaria, and Turkey. They have produced two recordings, a CD of the complete All-Night Vigil by Rachmaninov (hailed for its “consummate artistry” by Iowa Public Radio host Kurt Snook), and Seeking After that Sweet Golden Clime, a varied collection with Jonathan Dove’s The Passing of the Year as its centerpiece. They have been honored with two ACDA convention invitations. In 2000, the choir’s Baltic Tour included a full a cappella program, as well as another separate concert of Beethoven’s Mass in C and the premiere of John Rommereim’s Utopia with the Prague Radio Orchestra. In 2006, their international tour included an a cappella program with the premiere of a commissioned work by Pulitzer Prize-winnner Steven Stucky, and the Eastern-European premiere of Robert Levin’s completion of Mozart’s Grand Mass in C Minor. In April of 2011, the Grinnell Singers worked with the renowned conductor Simon Carrington during a week-long residency, culminating in a conducting master class and concert. In the spring of 2012, the Grinnell Singers participated in performances of Sacred Concerts, a remarkable work by the great jazz master, Duke Ellington, in collaboration with the Grinnell Jazz Ensemble. They commissioned an extended choral work by Mohammed Fairouz, in a consortium with the Back Bay Chorale and Marsh Chapel Choir in Boston, and Cantori New York. In the 2012-13 season, they continued this exploration of works that blur the lines between traditions, as they presented The World Beloved: A Bluegrass Mass, by Carol Barnett, in collaboration with an outstanding string band from Minneapolis, Monroe Crossing.

The ensemble’s director, John Rommereim is Blanche Johnson Professor of Music at Grinnell College, where he conducts the Grinnell Singers and the Grinnell Oratorio Society, and teaches composition. During the first part of his career, his scholarly work was centered in the areas of Russian choral music and early music performance. In more recent years, he has established a reputation as a composer as well. In 2006, The New York Times praised the “richly expressive” character of his work for voice and piano, Into the Still Hollow, premiered by baritone Thomas Meglioranza and pianist Reiko Uchida at Symphony Space. His choral works have been performed by distinguished ensem- bles across the U.S., including Magnum Chorum, the Princeton Singers, VocalEssence, Voces Novae, The Marsh Chapel Choir, and The Rose Ensemble, for whom he served as 2008-09 composer-in-residence. Mr. Rommereim has composed works for choir with various instruments, and works for voice and piano, guitar, flute, saxophone quartet, and string quartet. His choral/orchestral work Utopia was premiered with the Prague Radio Orchestra and the Grinnell Singers in 2000. He is the recipient of commissions and grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, the American Composers Forum, the Iowa Choral Directors Association, the Iowa Composers Forum, and the Iowa Arts Council. During his early years at Grinnell College, Mr. Rommereim founded a professional early music ensemble, the Baroque Orchestra of Iowa. He performed frequently as a harpsichordist, playing continuo in various chamber ensembles, appearing as soloist in J. S. Bach’s Fifth Brandenburg Concerto, and recording a CD that is available on the Centaur label. His translation of Pavel Chesnokov’s seminal treatise, The Choir and How to Direct It is published by Musica Russica. Mr. Rommereim is also recognized as an accom- plished singer. He has appeared in numerous recitals, and as baritone soloist for choral/orchestral works such as Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, Brahms’s German Requiem, Verdi’s Requiem, Vaughan Williams’s Dona Nobis Pacem, and Orff ’s Carmina Burana. Last spring, Mr. Rommereim taught a collaborative course for composers, writers and artists, in conjunction with novelist Dean Bakopoulos and artist Lee Running. The course culmina ed in performances of student works by the Grammy-Award winning ensemble Roomful of Teeth. In June of 2014, he traveled to Taipei to collaborate with Theatre professor Craig Quintero and to create an original score for a work based on Wagner’s Das Rheingold. Six Grinnell students traveled to Taipei to pursue Mentored Advanced Proj- ects and to appear alongside Quintero’s Riverbed theatre company in five capacity-crowd performances.

This performance includes the Kyrie and Gloria from the Mozart Grand Mass in C Minor. Great Mass in C minor (German: Große Messe in c-Moll), K. 427/417a, is the common name of the last musical setting of the mass by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. He composed it in Vienna in 1782 and 1783, when he was no longer a church musician of the Salzburg Cathedral. The large-scale work, a Missa Solemnis, is scored for two soprano soloists, a tenor and a bass, double chorus and orchestra. It remained unfinished, missing large portions of the Credo and the complete Agnus Dei. We will perform the the Kyrie and Gloria, which Mozart certainly wrote. Here is a sample of the music...



Vesperae solennes de confessore
, K. 339, is a sacred work composed in 1780 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. It is scored for SATB soloists, SATB choir, and orchestra. It was composed for liturgical use in the Salzburg Cathedral. This was Mozart's final choral work composed for the cathedral. Enjoy these musical samples...

ABOUT 'THE CAMERAMAN'


Buster (Buster Keaton), a sidewalk tintype portrait photographer, develops a crush on Sally (Marceline Day), a secretary who works for MGM Newsreels. To be near her, he purchases an old film camera, emptying his bank account, and attempts to get a job as one of MGM's filmers. Harold (Harold Goodwin), an MGM cameraman who has designs on Sally himself, mocks his ambition.
Sally, however, encourages Buster and suggests he film anything and everything. Buster's first attempts show his total lack of experience. He double exposes or over exposes much of the footage, and the rest is simply no good. Despite this setback, Sally agrees to go out with Buster, after her Sunday date cancels. They go to the city plunge (pool), where Buster gets involved in numerous mishaps. Later, Harold offers Sally a ride home; Buster has to sit in the rumble seat, where he gets drenched in the rain.

The next day, Sally gives him a hot tip she has just received that something big is going to happen in Chinatown. In his rush to get there, he accidentally runs into an organ grinder, who falls and apparently kills his monkey. A nearby cop makes Buster pay for the monkey and take its body with him. The monkey turns out only to be dazed and joins Buster on his venture.
In Chinatown, Buster films the outbreak of a "Tong War", narrowly escaping death on several occasions. At the end, he is rescued from Tong members by the timely arrival of the police, led by a cop (Harry Gribbon) who had been the unintentional victim of several of Buster's antics over the last few days. The cop tries to have him committed to the mental hospital, but Buster makes his escape with his camera intact.

Returning to MGM, Buster and the newsreel company's boss are dismayed to find that he apparently forgot to load film into his camera. When Sally finds herself in trouble for giving Buster the tip, Buster offers to make amends by leaving MGM alone once and for all.

Buster returns to his old job, but does not give up on filming, setting up to record a boat race. He then discovers that he has Tong footage after all; the mischievous monkey had switched the reels. Sally and Harold are speeding along in one of the boats. When Harold makes too sharp a turn, the two are thrown into the river. Harold saves himself, but Sally is trapped by the circling boat. Buster jumps in and rescues her. When Buster rushes to a drug store to get medical supplies to revive her, Harold returns and takes credit for the rescue. The two go off, leaving the broken-hearted Buster behind.

Buster decides to send his Tong footage to MGM free of charge. The boss decides to screen it for Harold and Sally for laughs, but is thrilled by what he sees, calling it the best camerawork he has seen in years. They also see footage of Buster's rescue of Sally (taken by the monkey). The boss sends Sally to get Buster. She tells him he is in for a great reception. Buster assumes a ticker-tape parade is in his honor, whereas it is really for Charles Lindbergh.
