MEN'S & WOMEN'S CHORUS CONCERT BOASTS MANY GENRES OF MUSIC
The Southern Nazarene University Men’s and Women’s Chorus concert takes place at 7:30 pm, Tuesday, April 9 in Cantrell Music Hall.

Under the direction of Dr. Brent Ballweg, the Men’s Chorus will present selections that are grouped into three themes. They will begin with several arrangements by Ovid Young of early sacred harp melodies, including “The Morning Trumpet” and “Come, Come Ye Saints.” Following are the folk and jazz arrangements, “Shenandoah” arranged by Paul Basler, and “Georgia On My Mind” arranged by Ed Lojeski. The Men’s Chorus will also perform their own humorous “Tribute to Women” with the pieces “I Wish to be Single Again” and a Caribbean folk song “Grumble Too Much.”

Professor Philip Miller will direct the Women’s Chorus. They will present selections from Henry Purcell, a set of folk songs, and a Broadway medley by Andrew Lloyd Webber. “Women’s Chorus provides a unique sound, from lush unison lines to engaging four part harmony,” said Miller.

Admission is free. For more information, contact the SNU School of Music at 405.491.6345 or email rspear@snu.edu.
