Cameron University Concert Choir and Centennial Singers to host vocal groups from Walters, Marlow and Lawton Eisenhower during combined concert

The Cameron University Department of Music will present the Cameron University Concert Choir and the Cameron University Centennial Singers in a combined concert on Tuesday, April 29. The concert will start at 7:30 p.m. in the University Theatre and will include guest appearances by the Walters High School Varsity Choir, directed by Charla Dedmon; the Eisenhower High School Gentry Singers, directed by Debbie Wood, and the Marlow High School Show Choir, directed by Brent Logan. Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for students/senior citizens. Cameron faculty, staff and students are admitted free with CU ID. Tickets can be purchased at the door.

The Cameron University Concert Choir will be performing a diverse set of choral music selected by Dr. Kathy Scherler, conductor, and will be accompanied by Tom Willoughby. The repertoire will include contemporary popular music spanning hits by Stevie Wonder to a cappella group Pentatonix, as well as music from the movies "Skyfall" and "Pitch Perfect."

"The popularity of a cappella singing on television programs such as ‘The Sing Off’ has given rise to a renewed interest in choral music,” says Scherler. “We hope to showcase this trend in this concert.”

The Cameron University Centennial Singers, conducted by Doris Lambert and accompanied by David Anderson on piano, will feature contemporary music including "I Wish," "Cloudburst" and "Over the Rainbow."
