Oratorio premiere draws media attention

The impending premiere this week of Stefan Freund’s Civil War oratorio is drawing plenty of attention from Columbia media.

Last week, Freund was interviewed by Trevor Harris of KBIA, and on Sunday, the Columbia Tribune published a feature story by Amy Wilder previewing the production.

Mizzou’s news service also had a preview story about the premiere, as did the Columbia Missourian. Though the latter article now is available only to subscribers, the Missourian also produced a short video to go with it, which you can view in the embedded video window below.

The world premiere of “The War Amongst Families and Neighbors: The Civil War in Missouri” takes place at 7:00 p.m., Thursday, April 24 in Jesse Auditorium. Tickets can be purchased online here, or at the door.
