OPUS Chamber Choir will present pieces from their touring repertoire including Brahms’ gypsy songs Vier Zigeunerlieder, a section from Ravel’s only a cappella piece, Nicolette from Trois Chansons, Moses Hogan’s stirring I'm Gonna Sing 'til the Spirit Moves in My Heart, as well as more traditional English madrigals.
