Spring Choral Concert Sunday at Catawba

Celebrate May Day with an early evening of music by the choral ensembles of Catawba College.
Due to bad weather two weeks ago and the changes in schedule that resulted, the Spring Choral Concert has been rescheduled for Sunday at 5 p.m. in Keppel Auditorium on campus.
The program includes the Catawba Singers, Chamber Singers, Menís Chorus, Womenís Chorus and the Catawba Chorale.
The wide variety of repertoire models the mission statement of the Music Department. Miltonís ěParadise Lostî will see two very different treatments as it is set to music from ěCreationî by Franz Joseph Haydn and ěParadise Lost: Angels & Wingsî by Eric Whitacre. Haydnís setting represents the best of the 18th century classical style, and Whitacreís new setting combines traditional choral sounds with techno-style accompaniment.
Other selections on the program include classical motets, folk songs, several selections from Musical Theatre, and even music of Freddy Mercury and Queen. The music is going to resemble North Carolina weather in the spring ó widely varied with unexpected changes.
Soloists include Ginny Weant, soprano; Corey Cellurale, soprano; Jonna Capone, soprano; Jennifer Drake, mezzo-soprano; Amelia Baity, mezzo-soprano; Kristopher Watson, tenor; Michael Stone, tenor; Andrew Taylor, tenor; Bradley Boaz, baritone; Nathan Collins, baritone; Chris Fink, baritone; Blake Tickle, baritone; and Melanie Hudson, French horn. The concert will also include Brent Messenger as a student conductor.
Dr. Robert Hallquist will accompany on the piano and Stephen Stringer on keyboards. The concert will be conducted by Dennis Jewett and Professor Paul E. Oakley, artist-in-residence for choral conducting, associate professor of music and college organist.
The concert is free and open to the public. Come and celebrate May Day in style with beautiful music.
