All three Presbyterian College choirs will perform in one concert on Thursday, March 15 at 7:30 p.m. The event will be in Edmunds Hall and is offered freely to the College and to the community.
The PC Choir will perform a repertoire from their recent tour. The repertoire will include an eclectic mix of traditional choral fare. Excerpts from Messiah (Part the Second), a motet by Rachmaninov, selections by contemporary composers Lauridsen and Anglea, and hymn and spiritual settings will be featured.
Bella Voce, the choir for women, and Cantare!, the male choir, will perform a repertoire written specifically for male and female choirs. The repertoire includes sacred and secular selections.
Dr. Porter Stokes, Director of Choral Activities, will conduct The PC Choir and Bella Voce. Dr. Ron Davis, Chair of the Department and Professor of Music, Organ, Handbells, & Theory, will conduct Cantare! The two conductors will also take turns accompanying the other choirs on piano.
As an additional treat, a string quintet from the college orchestra will be joining the choir for the Messiah excerpts. The orchestra is conducted by Dr. Richard Thomas and the students playing in the quintet are Paul Peart, violin, Kailynn Turner, violin, Tamia Hayes, viola, and Collin Mckinnon and Harris Banks, cello.
