Colorado Mesa University’s music department will bring one new and two “newly visioned” choral groups to the stage with its Fall Vocal Concert.

The concert is set for 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 12, at Robinson Theatre in the Moss Performing Arts Center, 1231 N. 12th St.

Of the four groups set to perform at the concert, the Vocal Arts Ensemble is the newest. This 45-voice auditioned choir has replaced the former Concert and Chamber Choirs and is directed by Monte Atkinson, according to a news release from CMU.

“The ensemble will showcase new music such as Eric Whitacre’s ‘Alleluia’ and Ola Gjeilo’s ‘Northern Lights,’” the release said.

The “newly visioned” groups are the Men’s Choir and Women’s Choir, which are both made up of CMU vocal students as well as CMU students from other disciplines and community members.

The Men’s Choir, directed by new faculty member John Howard, will perform the song “Bring Him Home” from “Les Miserables.”

Graham Anduri, the new director of vocal studies at CMU, will direct the Women’s Choir in the performances of “i think,” with text by e.e. Cummings and music by New England composer Gwyneth Walker. Walker was in residence at CMU in 2010, the news release said.

The fourth group to be featured in the concert is the Vocal Chords, a vocal jazz combo that will perform the pop ballad “The Luckiest,” and other selections.

Tickets to the concert cost $10 for adults, $8 for seniors or $5 for students. Tickets can be purchased at the Moss Performing Arts Center box office or by calling 248-1604.
