(Longview, Texas)—LeTourneau University’s Fine Arts Department will present its Spring Masterworks Concert on Monday, April 25, 2022 at 7:30 p.m. at Trinity Episcopal Church at 906 Padon St. in Longview. The Masterworks Festival Orchestra will accompany the LeTourneau Singers and Longview Civic Chorus in works that will also feature vocal soloists Leigh Latchford, soprano, William Parsons, tenor, and Casey McCarthy, baritone. Admission is open to the public and is free of charge.
The program will include the Fauré Requiem, Ravel’s Pavane pour une infante defunte (Pavane for a Dead Princess), and arias of Puccini and Mozart. The concert will also feature the premiere of Cambridge Songs Suite No. 4 for choir, orchestra, and soloists, composed by LeTourneau University’s Director of Fine Arts, Dr. Jim Taylor, who will conduct the concert.
The LeTourneau University Spring Masterworks Concerts have become a Longview tradition among the fine artistic performances in the city, and the lovely acoustics and beautiful sanctuary of Trinity Episcopal Church provide an ideal setting.
Cambridge Songs Suite No. 4 is the fourth suite Dr. Taylor has composed based on poems from an 11th century manuscript housed at Cambridge University since the 17th century. He conducted his second suite at Carnegie Hall in June 2019 and will bring a number of students and local singers as he conducts this fourth suite at L’eglise de la Madeleine in Paris, France, on June 16 this summer.
