On September 28, 2019, sounding light, conducted by Tom Trenney, will perform at Dordt University at 7 p.m. in the B.J. Haan Auditorium. Hirono Borter (violin) and Philip Borter (cello) of Duo-B will be featured in the performance as well as Dordt University’s Concert Choir, conducted by Ryan Smit.
“sounding light visited our campus two years ago,” says Ryan Smit, instructor of music. “After they performed, I looked forward to the next opportunity to invite them back. That opportunity has now arrived!”
A choir known for its “inspiring and illuminating” performances, sounding light has released four CD recordings, was honored as a semi-finalist for the American Prize for the Performance of American Music, and will be singing in Michigan, Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri, and Kansas during its 2019-20 season.
“I am eager for our students to collaborate with them and be inspired by their singing and music making,” says Smit. “I believe the community will also be impressed by their impeccable choral sound.”
The Concert Choir will be singing an arrangement of the gospel tune “Previous Lord, Take my Hand” and “All of Us” by Craig Hella Johnson with sounding light. They will also perform “When We Love” by Elaine Hagenberg on their own.
The concert is free and open to the public.
