The second half of the program will feature two outstanding contemporary works, “Dusk,” by Steven Bryant; and Frank Ticheli’s major work “Angels in the Architecture.” The latter will feature Adjunct Instructor of Music Joyce Andrews, soprano, singing the Shaker tune that is at the heart of Ticheli’s work.
