Tower Choir

The Northwest Tower Choir is an undergraduate mixed choir with a rich and varied history of outstanding choral performance. Membership is based upon musical and vocal skills, rather than area of study, though most members are music majors/minors.

Bach Cantata - BWV 172

hall

J.S. Bach composed his cantata Erschallet, ihr Lieder, erklinget, ihr Saiten! (Resound, ye songs, ring out, ye strings!) in 1714, shortly after being promoted to Konzertmeister of the royal court in Weimar, Germany. He later revised and performed it several times while in Leipzig.

It was written for Whit Sunday (the first day of Pentecost) and was first performed on May 20, 1714 at the court chapel of the Weimar palace.

Doctor of Musical Arts

The Doctor of Musical Arts degree (D.M.A.) is a doctoral academic degree in music. The degree combines advanced studies in an applied area of specialization (e.g. conducting) with graduate-level academic study in subjects such as music history, music theory, and music pedagogy.
