‘The Cool of the Day’ to feature contemplative, reflective choral music

As the year hurtles on toward spring, two Creighton University singing groups aim to provide tuneful reminders of the meditative qualities of the light and the dark at a Feb. 28 concert.

“The Cool of the Day,” set for 7:30 p.m., in St. John’s Church, will feature the Creighton University Chamber Choir conducted by A. Barron Breland, DM, associate professor of music and chair of the Department of Fine and Performing Arts, and the Creighton University Chorus conducted by Adam Witte.

Music for the concert will be themed around dawn and dusk, two times of day most associated with quiet, stillness, contemplation and reflection. The promise and hope of a day ending or a day beginning will also herald the performance.

The choirs will explore works from composers ranging from Monteverdi to Stanford to Dolly Parton.

Admission to the concert is free with a donation of canned food to benefit the Siena/Francis House.
