'Children of Eden' choral event scheduled at NDSU

Posted on 4/19/2018

The NDSU Challey School of Music is set to present a choral event featuring the Madrigal Singers, University Chamber Singers, Cantemus and Statesmen performing the music from "Children of Eden" Friday, May 4, and Saturday, May 5, at 7:30 p.m. The event will be directed by Mike Weber, associate director of choral activities.

Stephen Schwartz's two-act musical explores Biblical themes of parent-child relationships between the "Father" and Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, and Adam and Eve and their children, Cain and Abel.

The second act further explores the complexity of the relationships through a depiction between Noah and his son Japheth on the Ark. The partially-staged show sheds a bittersweet view on the conflict between rebellious children and their parents, and how parents respond to the children they love.

Both performances are at Festival Concert Hall in NDSU's Reineke Fine Arts Center, located at 12 Avenue North and Bolley Drive. Tickets are available at ndsu.showare.com/or by calling the NDSU Performing Arts Box Office at 701-231-7969. Tickets for adults are $20, seniors $15, students $10 and NDSU students are free with ID.

As a student-focused, land-grant, research university, we serve our citizens.
