7 p.m. Concert begins in the Chapel of the Immaculate Conception

The vocal ensemble Eya performs medieval music interpreted for women’s voices. The program for this special evening will be inspired by the long tradition of composing music for the Blessed Virgin Mary. Co-presented by the Marian Library and ArtsLIVE, the program will take its inspiration from the liturgical calendar and will include musical compositions found in the Marian Library collections. Opening performances will include the Chaminade Julienne High School Concert Choir and the University of Dayton Early Music Ensemble.

The event is free, but tickets are required. For tickets, contact the Kennedy Union box office at 937-229-2545 or visit the box office anytime between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Monday through Friday while the University is in session.
