The Tusculum College Community Chorus will begin its fall season of rehearsals on Monday, August 26, in room 46 of the Annie Hogan Fine Arts Center on the Tusculum College campus.
The chorus meets each Monday from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. The group is open to all interested singers; no audition is required. Dues are $20 per semester. David Hendricksen is the conductor for the group; James Winfree is accompanist.
The group’s Christmas concert will be presented on Monday, December 9. The chorus will be singing a selection of the charming Alfred Burt carols. Guest artist, guitarist Charles Tunstall will join the Chorus in three selections: “We Three Kings,” “O Little Town of Bethlehem,” and the original version of “Silent Night.” The program will include a variety of other carols and compositions for the season.
A highlight will be a recently composed work by Ann Holler, professor of music at King University, with a text by Dr. John Wakefield, a retired music professor from Milligan College. The chorus looks forward to learning this evocative music and sharing it with the public in December.
Founded in 1996 as a way to involve singers from throughout the community in a broad range of sacred and secular repertoire, the Tusculum College Community Chorus has grown to over 50 singers.
