EVENT INFORMATION

David Rentz, visiting conductor, leads the Pomona College Choir in a mixed program of beloved classics and new music with pieces from the 17th to the 21st century. Among the selections are works by Betinis, Brown, Fauré, Guillaume, Rachmaninoff, Schumann, Schütz, Spencer, Whitacre and others.

The program is repeated Sunday, Dec. 3 at 3pm.

The Pomona College Choir boasts a membership of approximately 70-80 auditioned singers per semester, with membership from across the Claremont Colleges.

Its repertoire includes Western classical art music from all historical periods, and it has offered stirring performances of works ranging from Palestrina’s "Exultate Deo" to Eric Whitacre’s "Leonardo Dreams of his Flying Machine" and Samuel Barber’s "Agnus Dei." Although the group regularly sings unaccompanied small and medium-length works, they also take on larger choral pieces, including works such as Brahms’ Requiem, Handel’s "Messiah," Bach’s "Magnificat," Borodin’s "Polovtsian Dances" (in Russian), and Bernstein’s "Chichester Psalms" (in Hebrew).
