Concert choir to perform new piece commemorating end of World War I

One-hundred years after the end of World War I, a new composition commemorating that day in history will be performed by the Penn State Concert Choir on November 11 at 4 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. in the School of Music’s new recital hall, adjacent to Music Building I.  MEMORIA: A Cantata for the Centenary of the Armistice, by Scott Eggert, was commissioned by Christopher Kiver, professor of music and director of choral activities at Penn State, as part of an interdisciplinary project commemorating the armistice that ended the war. The commission was made possible in part by a Faculty Research Grant from the Penn State College of Arts and Architecture.
