The University Singers of the University of Virginia will perform at St. Paul’s on Wednesday, May 22, at 7:30 p.m. The University Singers are UVA’s flagship choral ensemble. This group of 75 men and women performs a cappella and accompanied choral pieces. The choir has toured extensively throughout the US and Europe. Last fall, they joined the Charlottesville Symphony on the steps of UVA Rotunda (designed by Thomas Jefferson) to perform for UVA’s Bicentennial Celebration before a crowd of 20,000.

For the May 22 concert at St. Paul’s, the choir will perform Eriks Ešenvald’s “Only in Sleep,” Chesnokov’s “Spaseniye Sodelal,” Eric Whitacre’s “Water Night,” and traditional songs arranged by Stephen Paulus, Nathanial Dett and Moses Hogan. The Chamber Singers will also perform, singing selections including Ben Fold’s “The Luckiest.”

It is sure to be a very special evening at St. Paul’s. The concert is free; a freewill offering is suggested.
