The concert will conclude the 25 years that Carol Ann Niles has directed the Women’s Choir. A reception for Niles will follow the concert.

Niles, who will continue to teach voice for CMU, founded the Women’s Choir a quarter-century ago and has served continuously as its conductor.

The concert will begin with the Women’s Choir presenting two rhythmical Latin American pieces accompanied by the guitar, according to a news release from CMU.

“The American Mass” by Ron Kean will be the choir’s “featured piece.” It “weaves African American spirituals and Hymn tunes with the traditional Latin Mass format,” a news release said.

The choir also will sing a full medley from “Les Miserables.”

The CMU Chamber Choir, conducted by Monte Atkinson, will perform a program of “spring masterworks,” the release said.

The program will include French composer Francis Poulenc’s “Lenten motet Vinea mea electra” and American composer Norman Dinerstein’s “When David Heard,” both will be CMU premieres.

For the finale, Niles will conduct both choirs for “Irish Blessing” by British composer Philip Stopford.

Tickets cost $10 for adults, $8 for seniors and $5 for students. Call 248-1604 for tickets and information.
