Simpson University Music Department Presents ‘Faces of Love’ Concert

For Immediate Release

02.13.2014

REDDING, Calif. - Enjoy an elegant evening of choral music, hors d’oeuvres and dessert, and a silent auction, presented by the Simpson University Music Department.

“Faces of Love” will be presented at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 28, in the Heritage Student Life Center at Simpson University. It will feature performances by the Simpson Chorale, Trinity Repertory Singers, and university music professors Dr. Cyril Myers and JennyRebecca Winans.

The cost is $15 per person. All proceeds benefit the Simpson University choral program.

The silent auction includes gift baskets, travel opportunities, and home décor. A featured item, donated by Members 1st Credit Union, is a 7-night stay through Wyndham Properties, which offers hundreds of destinations to choose from nationally and worldwide.

The evening’s music will focus on the many ways, or “faces,” of human love. “Love affects all of us and is an intrinsic part of being human. We will visit music that evokes aspects of love in various forms of relationships: familial, romantic partners, humanity, nature, those who have passed, country, spirituo/religious, nostalgia of lost love,” said Dr. Myers, director of choral studies.

Dr. Myers, who has been a choral director at several universities, including Indiana University-Purdue University Ft. Wayne, is an alumnus of three professional ensembles: Oregon Bach Festival; Gaechinger Kantorei - Stuttgart, Germany; and Male Ensemble Northwest.

Winans, who recently joined the adjunct music faculty at Simpson, is a soprano who received her master of music degree from the Manhattan School of Music in New York. She has performed in Berlin, Spain and Norway, as well as with opera companies in the U.S. In addition to opera, she writes and sings original compositions in a jazz/folk/indie style.

Tickets can be purchased online at simpsonu.edu/musicevents, at the Simpson Bookstore, or by calling 530-226-4507.

Those interested in donating items for the silent auction can email Grace Thompson at gthompson@simpsonu.edu. Donors will be advertised in the event program.
