Pepperdine Choir and Orchestra Masterworks Concert

Pierre Tang, Director

Tuesday, April 12, 2022 • 7:30PM

Presented by Pepperdine Music

This Masterworks concert celebrates the Fine Arts Music Department students, who have weathered unprecedented challenges this school year and throughout the pandemic—they have persevered and worked tirelessly to hone their skills and share their talents. Come see the choirs and orchestra perform alongside 30 Pepperdine alumni in a dramatic musical celebration of their hard work and resilience.

The evening will also include recognition of professor of voice Dr. Melanie Emelio, and her 20 years of teaching, service, scholarship, and discipleship at Pepperdine University. The performance will celebrate her retirement and send her and her husband Neal forth with blessings into the next chapter of their lives.

Much of the music for this concert was chosen by or for Dr. Emelio. Samuel Barber’s Knoxville: Summer 1915 and Francis Poulenc’s Gloria are considered favorites among sopranos, and will be presented along with a host of other stunning pieces.
