Friday's performance will feature the Adams State Chamber and Concert Choirs. They will be performing a wide variety of music in celebration of the many aspects of life. Featured pieces include the ethereal and beautiful "Ave Maria" by Austrian composer Franz Biebl, and a Mass setting by Dietrich Buxtehude.
