SPRING, Texas - The sounds of over 250 north Houston choral students will fill The Centrum, 6823 Cypresswood Dr., when Swedish conductor, Robert Sund, conducts a choir concert entitled, A World of Song: Music of Scandinavia and More at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 4, 2001. Cypress Creek Foundation for the Arts & Community Enrichment (FACE) is proud to present this unique concert, as part of their Focus on Education program. This concert is the second in a series of nine concerts in the 2001-2002 Fifth Anniversary Season Promenade Concert Series.

Sund was named Conductor of the Year in 1993 by the Föreningen Sveriges Körledare (Association of Swedish Choirmasters). For the past 17 years he has been professor of choral studies at the Musikhögskolan (Academy of Music) in Stockholm. Sund is conductor of the internationally renowned male choir Orphei Drängar. He joined the choir as a second bass in 1965, and was also its assistant conductor under Eric Ericson for a number of years. Sund's career as a conductor, adjudicator, composer/arranger, and educator has earned him worldwide acclaim. He has guest conducted the radio choirs in Stockholm and Vienna, the Eric Ericson Chamber Choir, the Adolf Fredriks Bach Choir, the Coro Nacional in Cuba, the Grupo de Canto Coral in Buenos Aires, and the World Youth Choir. He has lectured in Scandinavia, Germany, Austria, England, the USA, Venezuela, Argentina, and New Zealand. The University of Minnesota, the University of Tacoma, and the College of Music in Düsseldorf offered him a chair as visiting professor. He is also known as a composer and arranger of both instrumental and choral works that are widely performed throughout the world.

The program will include Mozart: V'amo di core; Åslund: KOM; Åhlén: Sommarpsalm; Rachmaninov: Bogoroditse Devo; Victoria: Domine, non sum dignus; Kostiainen: Jaakobin pojat; Marschner: Gute Nacht; Sund-Alin: Fever; Bardos: Cantemus, Sund: Alouette and The Drunken Sailor.
