SMND Choral Conducting Recital | Emmanuel de Leon


Location: DeBartolo Performing Arts Center - Leighton Concert Hall

Fy22 Recital Dma 3 C Emmanuel De Leon 2022 05 02 Poster Edit

Emmanuel de Leon Jr, a Filipino conductor, will present his third recital at 7:00 PM on Monday, May 2, 2022, at the Leighton Concert Hall, DeBartolo Performing Arts Center, Notre Dame, Indiana. De Leon is a candidate for the Bower Doctor of Musical Arts degree from Sacred Music at Notre Dame. 

In his doctoral thesis, de Leon explores the sophisticated and ongoing integration of German baroque rhetoric with Philippine folklore and folk music in selected sacred music of contemporary composer Eudenice Palaruan. In this recital, SMND's Concordia Choir will sing the World Premiere of Palaruan's "Pastol," a choral devotion based on Psalm 23 for mixed choir, boy soprano, soloists, Organ, Harp, Drum, and Philippine Bamboo Instruments. The text of this new work draws on many languages:  Tagalog, Ilocano, Itneg, Vizaya, Ifugao, Latin, Spanish, Greek, and English. The choir will be accompanied by SMND's Ritornello Ensemble.

The recital will also feature the Chichester Psalms by the iconic American composer Leonard Bernstein and Edward Elgar's "Nimrod" from the Enigma Variations. 

Emmanuel de Leon, Jr., is grateful for the support of Notre Dame's Nanovic Institute for European Studies in the commissioning of this new composition by Eudenice Palaruan.

This performance will be live-streamed.
