Central Methodist University’s Conservatory Singers will be performing Ola Gjeilo’s “Sunrise Mass” with the Missouri Symphony Conservatory Chamber Players (string orchestra) on Sunday, April 14 at 7 p.m.

The concert will take place in Linn Memorial United Methodist Church on CMU’s main campus in Fayette, and all are welcome to attend for free. The event is funded by a generous grant from the Missouri Choral Directors Association Founders Grant, with special thanks to Noel and Carolyn Fulkerson.

Conductor of the mass is Maestro Kirk Trevor, conductor of the Missouri Symphony.

Additionally, CMU’s Conservatory Singers will perform a set of music on their own, and the orchestra will perform their own set.

For any local musicians interested in participating and joining in on the rehearsals, please contact Laura J. Wiebe, assistant professor of music, choir, and voice by emailing lwiebe@centralmethodist.edu or calling 660-248-6316.
