Entitled "From the Boulder to Beijing and Back...," the performance is free and open to the public.

Included in the program are two Ascension motets separated by four centuries, two lamentsfrom Spain and Italy, a medieval chant on the "Magnificat" text juxtaposed with a modern version constructed out of folk melodies from West Africa, and Chinese and American interpretations of a train in motion.

"After performing to full houses in Beijing and Shanghai, we are thrilled to be bringing our music back home," says Professor Gabriel Crouch, director of DePauw Choirs.
