A Bonner Springs student will be one of two soloists for the Palm Sunday Concert of the combined Chorales of Benedictine College and the University of Saint Mary.
The concert will be held at 3 p.m. Sunday, March 24, in Annunciation Chapel on the campus of the University of Saint Mary, 4100 S. 4th St., Leavenworth, Kan.
Ashley Muldoon, a freshman from Bonner Springs, is one of the vocal soloists. Also appearing as a vocal soloist is Sarah DaMetz, a freshman from Lansing, Kan.
The concert, in its 26th year, is an annual tradition at Saint Mary and Benedictine. It is free.
The Chorales will be supported by an instrumental Chamber Ensemble and the Benedictine Brass Ensemble.
The program will feature 20th century works by English composers, including Rutter’s “Requiem,” Vaughn-Williams’ “O Clap Your Hands,” and Holst’s “O God, Beyond All Praising.”
The concert will be conducted by William Krusemark of the University of Saint Mary and accompanied at the organ by Ruth Krusemark of Benedictine College. The brother-and-sister team originated the joint performance as a way to present a major spring choral event.
“This series has allowed our students to perform some of the great choral works of history, which would otherwise be impractical for small choirs,” William Krusemark said.
