Grove City College’s Department of Music presents a pair of concerts this week that feature some great student singing from four ensembles.
At 7:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 12 the Grove City College Singers take to the Arnold Recital Hall stage in the Pew Fine Arts Center to guide their audience through “The Four Seasons.”
The women’s choral ensemble will sing selections including “For the Beauty of the Earth” by John Rutter, “The Rivers are Running Again” by Amy Bernon, “The Sky, the Dawn and the Sun” arranged by. Audrey Snyder and “There is a Season” by Greg Gilpin. The Singers, directed by Professor of Music Dr. Stacy A. Paparone, will also perform “The Hands That First Held Mary’s Child” by Dan Forrest to usher in the Christmas season and encourage listeners to think about Joseph on the night Christ was born.
At 4:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 14 the fall choral concert “Gloria” will feature the Concert Choir, Touring Choir and Chamber Singers.
The choirs will be singing works by Hassler, Palestrina, Stanford, Mealor and Moses Hogan in Harbison Chapel. The event features British composer John Rutter’s exciting “Gloria,” a work in three movements performed by the Concert Choir accompanied by organist Dr. Bradley Fitch. Rutter’s composition is a very popular seasonal choice for choirs. All choirs are directed by Associate Professor of Music and Director of Choral Activities Dr. Katherine Mueller.
Also this weekend, the College hosts the Broadway Revue at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 13 in Arnold Recital Hall, featuring students from the College’s Musical Theater Workshop class.
Admission to all shows is free and open to the public.
