Augustana Performing and Visual Arts presents The Augustana Choir and Augustana Band in Concert at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, May 4, at Our Savior's Lutheran Church.

The Augustana Band, under the direction of Dr. Christopher Unger, will perform:

  • Angels in the Architecture — Frank Ticheli, Featuring Marilyn Schempp, organ
  • Symphony No. 7 — David Maslanka, Featuring Jacob Fenner, Trombone

The Augustana Choir, Dr. Paul Nesheim, conductor, will perform:

  • Agnus Dei from Mass in E Minor — Anton Bruckner (performed with the Band) - The piece features some of the most lush harmonies and passionate pleas for God’s mercy of all of the settings that have been done of this text. It’s also unusual among repertoire written by the most prominent composers of the last few centuries, in that it combines voices with instruments but the instrumental ensemble does not include strings.
  • Swing Low, Sweet Chariot Spiritual, arr. Moses Hogan
  • Set Down Servant Spiritual, arr. Robert Shaw
  • Evening Prayer Ola Gjeilo (featuring Dr. Brian Hanegan, saxophone)
  • Song for Athene — John Tavener
