The University of Iowa Women's Chorale, directed by UI School of Music graduate assistant C. Michael Porter, will present a free public concert at 8 p.m. Wednesday, April 16 in Clapp Recital Hall on the UI campus.

One of the major choral ensembles of the UI School of Music, the Women's Chorale is open by audition to all UI students. The group consists of approximately 25 singers and presents at least one concert performance each semester.

The April 16 concert will be presented in four sets. The first set will feature selections from the "Vespers for the Feast of Holy Innocents" by J. Michael Haydn, the younger brother of Joseph Haydn and a friend of the Mozart family in Salzburg.

The second set will feature two works from the Jewish tradition: "Schloff main kind" (Sleep, my child), a Yiddish lullaby by Allan E. Naplan; and "Shiru L'Adonai" by Lawrence Avery, which will be sung in Hebrew.

The third set will comprise "Bonny Green Wood," a traditional Irish ballad; and "Ubi caritas" by contemporary composer E. Daley.

For the fourth set, the Women's Chorale will perform Ronald Corp's setting of Shakespeare's "When daffodils begin to peer" and "Some Hums, by Pooh," Ronald Jeffers' setting of texts from A.A. Milne's "Winnie, The Pooh."

Accompanist of the Women's Chorale is music graduate student Marion Doherty Hayden.

The School of Music is part of the Division of Performing Arts in the UI College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
