ABAC Choir's Spring Concert is Thursday

TIFTON, GA (WALB) -

Spirited pieces from composers ranging from Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart to Irving Berlin will highlight the annual spring concert by the most talented voices at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College on April 10.

Music Program Director Susan Roe will lead the 75-member Concert Choir in its annual performance at 7 p.m. in Howard Auditorium. The concert is open to the public at no charge.

 The choir's selections for the evening will begin with "The Star Spangled Banner" arranged by John Stafford Smith followed by "Veni Sancte Spiritus KV 47" by Mozart. The choir will be accompanied on this piece by Dr. Douglas Jurs, assistant professor of theory and piano for the ABAC music program, and accompanist for all ABAC choral groups.

Sheri Wyles and The Mannheim Musicians, along with select musicians from the ABAC Concert Band conducted by Johnny News from Folsom will also join in. The Concert Choir will then sing "Arise, Beloved!" by Rosephanye Powell accompanied by Jurs and Wyles.

The women of the Concert Choir will then present Amy Bernon's "Come in from the Firefly Darkness". The tenors and basses of the concert choir will sing Kristopher Jon Anthony's "I Shall Miss Loving You" accompanied by Jurs and Rachel Smith on French horn. Smith is a freshman music major from Jefferson.

The ABAC Jazz Choir, an auditioned choral ensemble within the ABAC music program, will perform "How Deep is the Ocean" by Berlin, arranged by Rosana Eckert. Kezia Green, a vocal music major from Sylvester, will be the featured soloist. The next piece will be "Do You Know What It Means to Miss New Orleans?" written by Eddie De Lange and Louis Alter, arranged by Kirby Shaw and featuring Erica Humbert, vocal music major from Thomasville.

The ABAC Chamber Singers, another one of the music program's auditioned choral ensembles, will perform Frank Ticheli's "There Will Be Rest," followed by the entire choir's performance of Brandon Waddles' "Ride in the Chariot" with soloists Travius Burch, a sophomore vocal music major from Sylvester, and Terrence Gibson, a freshman vocal music major from Baxley.

The evening's performance will conclude with the new choral arrangement by Zoe Hobby of ABAC's Alma Mater.
