Cal Poly’s 2018-19 large choral ensembles will be introduced at 8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 27, in Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa. PolyPhonics and the University Singers will present a fall concert titled “Luminous Night of the Soul,” which is intended to showcase the talent of the Cal Poly vocal program and to give listeners a taste of the year to come. The University Singers will perform a portion of the well-known “Solemn Vespers” by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, as well as modern works by Craig Hella Johnson and Gwyneth Walker. PolyPhonics, the university’s premier choir, will perform Ola Gjeilo’s “Luminous Night of the Soul” along with a string quartet comprised of Cal Poly students. The choir will also perform Ēriks Ešenvalds’ hauntingly beautiful “Only in Sleep.” Several vocal solos will highlight the diversity and skill of the department’s student vocalists. Paul Woodring is the accompanist for the choirs. Director of Choral Activities Scott Glysson conducts the choirs. Glysson recently returned from a trip to Kenya where he conducted the Nairobi Women’s Chorus in Nairobi.
