UMD University Singers to Perform at Carnegie Hall -- May 7
UMD Dean Wm. Robert Bucker to Conduct Full Concert


The University Singers from the University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) will perform at New York's Carnegie Hall in a concert set for Sunday, May 7 at 2 p.m. The full concert will be conducted by the dean of the UMD School of Fine Arts, Dr. Wm. Robert Bucker.

As a special honor, the University Singers have been invited to sing 25 minutes of solo music during the concert. The solo invitation was based on audition tapes by the group. Fifty UMD student members of the University Singers will take part in the concert.

The Carnegie Hall performance was made possible through the professional associations of Dean Bucker. Before coming to UMD in August of 1997, Dr. Bucker was the Director of the Education Department of the Metropolitan Opera and Metropolitan Opera Guild in New York City. As Director of the Education Program, Dr. Bucker led the largest performing arts education program in the country which is supported by a professional company. The "Education @ the Met" department provides audience development programs for all ages from kindergarten to adulthood, and administers the "Creating Original Opera" program throughout this country and in 18 foreign countries.

The centerpiece of the Carnegie concert will be Requiem, Op. 9, by Maurice Durufle accompanied by the professional players of the New England Symphonic Ensemble. Choirs from around the country participating in the performance will be: the UMD University Singers, Hudson High School (Wisconsin), Rowan University (Glasboro, New Jersey), and Sarah Lawrence College (Bronxville, New York).

Chancellor Kathryn A. Martin will be traveling to New York City for the performance and will host a reception for UMD alumni and friends in the area following the performance.
