From the delicate texture of Renaissance polyphonic motets of William Byrd, John Wilbye, and Claudio Monteverdi, to the ethereal interpretations of Elgar, Debussy, and Barber, and spirited, contemplative settings arranged by contemporary composers Ivo Antognini, Paul Mealor, and Ola Gjeilo. The Choral Union bids farewell to Music Director, Jeff Rehbach, who is retiring after his seven year tenure with the Choral Union.To mark the occasion, the Choral Union will present the premiere of 'How Can I Keep from Singing?' newly arranged by VCU tenor, Maarten van Ryckevorsel.
