All area residents are invited to celebrate EARTH DAY at the University of Wisconsin-Sheboygan by participating in bird walks, lectures, and other activities throughout the day. Join us in the evening for the MUSE Concert (Musicians from the University Soloists and Ensembles), featuring the UW-Sheboygan Chorus and Jazz Ensemble, on Tuesday, April 22 beginning at 7 p.m. in the UW-Sheboygan Fine Arts Theatre.
Dr. Christy Talbott, UW-Sheboygan Assistant Professor of Music, will direct the UW-Sheboygan Chorus which includes students from the university as well as community members. Paul Sucherman, UW-Sheboygan Instructor, will direct the Jazz Ensemble. The concert will consist of four sets related to Earth, Wind, Water, and Fire. Songs include: John Rutter’s For the Beauty of the Earth, Ashokan Farewell (made famous by the Ken Burns’ movie “The Civil War”), and Colors of the Wind from the Disney movie “Pocohontas.” The song This We Know will be performed in four languages to demonstrate the hope of harmony and unity among all peoples. The Jazz Ensemble will heat things up with the Shorty Rogers and His Giants tune Martians Go Home and the bossa nova Watch What Happens.
Children will be invited to sing on stage for the Disney song, and members of all ages may join in on the final number. The entire audience will be asked to help us create a rainstorm in the theater.
Admission is $5 for adults, $1 for seniors, and FREE to students and children.
