The Tusculum College Community Chorus will present its spring concert on Monday, May 6, at 7:30 p.m. in the Annie Hogan Byrd Auditorium on the Tusculum College campus. David Hendricksen is the conductor for the group; James Winfree is accompanist. There is no admission charge for the concert.
The first half of the program includes sacred music, starting with a rhythmic setting of Psalm 150 by Brazilian composer Ernani Aguiar, motets from the European tradition, spanning three centuries, and music from America including spirituals, gospel, and a calm setting of a traditional Irish blessing by Boston composer Steven Karidoyanes.
After intermission, the choir will sing a variety of folk songs and music from Broadway shows including a medley of the music from “Oliver.”
Throughout the evening, a variety of Community Chorus members will sing solo roles: Beth Brimer, Michael Forte, Jill Jones, John Maddux, Robert L. Moore, Leslie Vaughan and Martha Wiley.
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.
