On Friday, Nov. 18, Dan Locklair’s The Stars was performed by the Harvard Glee Club (Andrew Clark, Conductor) at Woolsey Hall of Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut. Piano accompanist was Bernard Kreger. Locklair is the composer-in-residence and a professor of music at Wake Forest.
The performance was a preview of a movement from the composer’s Winter (from the forgottens), the complete version of which will be premiered in December. This was the annual concert together with the Yale Glee Club the night before the Harvard-Yale football game.
Locklair’s Pater Noster, motet for SSAATTBB chorus, a cappella, was aired on Nov. 13 on the nationally syndicated With Heart and Voice radio program as part of their Sacred American Music episode. You can listen to the archived broadcast at http://interactive.wxxi.org/whv.
