Langley student at Whitman College sings at historic event

Mark Arand of Langley recently joined fellow Whitman College Symphony and Chamber Singer members in a concert of music not previously performed in 300 years at the annual Whitman College Winter Concert.

The concert was conducted by Jeremy Mims, visiting assistant professor of music, and sponsored by the Whitman Department of Music. The Symphony and Chamber Singers performed works by Mexican baroque composer Miguel Mateo de Dallo y Lana, on March 5 in Whitman’s Chism Recital Hall.

Mims researched the works, including “Beatus Vir,” during a trip to the Cathedral of Puebla in Mexico. Dallo y Lana’s work dates back to the 16th century, but was only recovered in the 1960s in the archives of the cathedral.
