Erin Bryan will be soloist with Oshkosh Chamber Singers Sunday
Assistant Professor of Music Erin Bryan will be the soprano soloist when the Oshkosh Chamber Singers presents Josef Haydn’s masterpiece oratorio “The Creation” on Palm Sunday, April 2. The performance will begin at 3 p.m. at Most Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church, St. Mary site, 605 Merritt Ave., Oshkosh, with choir, soloists and an orchestra of regional musicians.
Other soloists will be Zach Durlam, tenor, of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee; and Nathan Krueger, bass, of UW-Oshkosh.
Members of the choir include Professor of History Rebecca Matzke, Professor of Biology Memuna Khan and College Editor Jaye Alderson.
The oratorio depicts and celebrates the seven days of the biblical creation of the world as described in the Book of Genesis, and is an ode to the goodness of God. The libretto draws material from the beginning of Genesis, the Psalms and Milton’s “Paradise Lost,” and the score includes the popular “The Heavens are Telling.”
