Kalamazoo Choral Arts (formerly the Kalamazoo Bach Festival Chorus) will perform its annual celebration of love in many flavors at 7:30 pm on Tuesday, Mar 5 in the Dalton Theatre of the Light Fine Arts Building at Kalamazoo College. The Kalamazoo College Singers are also featured.

Music director Chris Ludwa, KCA member Madeline Mancuso and K-College senior and junior Drake Butcher and Alexa Wonacott join Cara Lieurance to talk about how singing adds to their lives. They each share a favorite work on the program. One piece, “Wangol,” speaks of a love of home. It was introduced to the group by Samuel Marseilles, a Haitian student studying in Kalamazoo.

Cara Lieurance is the local host of NPR's All Things Considered on 1021 WMUK and covers local arts & culture on Let's Hear It on 89.9 Classical WMUK weekday mornings at 10 - 11 am.
