The Amherst College Department of Music presents its annual Homecoming Choral Society Concert. The program, titled How Can I Keep From Singing?, includes works by Adolphus Hailstork, Sarah Quartel, Rosephanye Powell and more. The tenors and basses perform a choral setting of "Heartland" by Professor of Music Eric Sawyer. This work is from Sawyer's cycle A Winter's Ramble, a modern examination of the wanderer from Franz Schubert's famous Winterreise song cycle. Our songs will span 442 years of choral music and six languages. We finish with the singing of College Songs that all alums are invited to join, including "O Amherst" and "Paige's Horse"!
Free and open to the public, with general admission
