Male chorus to perform

MARQUETTE — The Marquette Male Chorus performs its fall concert, “And When I Sing, I am Free” at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Redeemer Lutheran Church, 1700 W. Fair Ave., Marquette.

Songs and singing have long been a mainstay of American life. The chorus will present several songs of American poets and composers, such as “Beautiful Dreamer” by Stephan Foster, and Johnny Mercer’s “When October Goes.”

The title of this concert is based on the Sara Teasdale poem, “Refuge” which reflects how music and the performance can free one’s soul.

Admission to the concert is $8 and $5 for seniors and children, paid at the door.
