When the UNH Concert Choir premieres a new arrangement of “The Sleeping of a Child” by UNH music Professor David Ripley on Sunday, May 5, 2013, it will be dedicated to the families of Newtown, Conn., and the national effort to lessen gun violence in American society.

Originally for solo, unaccompanied voice, it is now arranged for five-part chorus, solo soprano, baritone, and harp. The choir will perform Ripley’s piece under his direction as part of a program titled “A New Created World, The Joys of Papa Haydn”, after his oratorio, “The Creation.”

The concert starts at 3 p.m. in the Johnson Theater of the UNH Paul Creative Arts Center. The program is free and open to the public.
