MSU OperaWorks presents spring concert March 25

Morehead State University OperaWorks will present a music concert for the Lenten season. The concert titled “Soli Deo Gloria” (to God alone is the glory) takes place at 7:30 p.m. Monday, March 25, at Jesus Our Savior Catholic Church, 315 Battson Oates Drive in Morehead.

The concert will feature a variety of music that is sacred but not limited to music for the church. Selections include songs from “The Sound of Music,” “Carousel,” “Fiddler on the Roof,” “Godspell,” and “Jesus Christ, Superstar.” There are also operatic excerpts from Verdi's Nabucco and other sacred favorites, including Schubert's “Ave Maria,” Malotte's “The Lord Prayer,” familiar spirituals, and Handel oratorios will fill the program.

MSU OperaWorks is branching out to include a more diverse repertoire, according to founder and director Dr. Roma Prindle, who established the program 30 years ago.

“This particular program will appeal to a wide variety of audiences while still emphasizing the importance of classical singing,” she said.
