Songs about home will be the theme when University of Wisconsin-Stout’s Symphonic Singers, Chamber Choir and Devil Tones Acappella Ensemble hold their annual choral concert.

The performance, “Long Sought Home,” will be at 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 2, at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church, 910 9th St. E.

Tickets are $5 and can be purchased in advance at the Memorial Student Center, online at http://tickets.uwstout.edu and at the door before the concert.

The concert will seek to capture in music the struggles of establishing a home, the longing for a home past or future and the celebration of a new home, according to Jerry Hui, UW-Stout choral director and an associate professor.

Selections include traditional Hebrew folk songs, worship music of early American settlers, a wedding cantata by Johann Sebastian Bach, music of the Sephardic Jews — the Jewish diaspora in Spain — and more.

The Symphonic Singers is made up of approximately 35 UW-Stout students while the Chamber Choir has about 20 members.

Guest musicians will include the Chippewa Valley String Quartet and Schola Cantorum, both based in Eau Claire.
