Cameron University Concert Choir and Centennial Singers to host 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 28. The concert will start at 7:30 p.m. in the University Theatre. 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 Patrick Callaghan, conductor. The repertoire will include the onomatopoeic “The Bees’ Song” by Abbie Betinis; “O nata lux” by Joel Love, which features tuned water goblets; “Benedictus es” by

 Ēriks Ešenvalds; “Il est bel et bon” by Passereau; “Ain’t Got Time To Die” by Hall Johnson; and the world premiere of Jonathan Annis’ “Beloved.”  Tom Willoughby will accompany the Concert Choir.

The Cameron University Centennial Singers, conducted by Doris Lambert and accompanied by David Anderson and Dr. Jim Lambert, will feature “The Star Spangled Banner” arranged by Jamey Ray, followed by “Comanche Hymn,” the latter in appreciation of the Comanche Nation’s generous support of Cameron’s choral program. Additional numbers will feature five graduating seniors, who each selected a number for the concert. These include “Bumble Bee” by Anders Edenroth; “Ubi Caritas” by Ola Gjeilo; “Underneath the Stars” by Kate Rusby, arranged by Jim Clements and featuring Kirk Prucha; “El Grillo” by Dan Davison, with special appearance by Dr. Carolyn Keyes on flute; “When I Fall in Love” by Victor Young, arranged for a cappella by Kirby Shaw and featuring Alyson Hays; and “Cloudburst” arranged by Kirby Shaw and featuring Peter Macias.
