Maclean’s magazine recently asked nearly 24,000 students across the country whether their university education is preparing them for a job. The University of Waterloo landed in top spot as the institution students believe is most likely to prepare them for employment.
Well, if Maclean's can do it, why can't we? University Communications set out yesterday to talk to Waterloo students about their thoughts on the subject:
On Sunday, April 22 at 4:00 p.m., Spiritus Ensemble, conducted by Conrad Grebel music professor Kenneth Hull, closes its 2017-18 season with a performance of Mozart’s most popular choral work, his Requiem. Because Mozart left the work incomplete at the time of his death, it now exists in several versions. "We will be performing the more familiar, traditional version completed shortly after Mozart’s death," writes Hull. "We will open the concert with two choruses from the Trauermusik (funeral music) of Johann Ludwig Bach, a 2ndcousin of Johann Sebastian’s. JSB performed several of his cousin’s cantatas during his tenure as Thomaskantor in Leipzig. Johann Ludwig Bach’s Trauermusik has—so far as we can tell—never been performed in Canada, and certainly not in this part of the country." The concert takes place at St. John's Lutheran Church at 22 Willow Street. General admission is $30, with seniors paying $25, post-secondary students paying $15 and high schoolers paying $5. Tickets will be available at the door and also online through www.spiritusensemble.com.
