Spring Choral Concert is Arts at Pellissippi State season finale

Pellissippi State Community College’s Spring Choral Concert on May 1 brings to an end the 2013-2014 The Arts at Pellissippi State season.

The concert is at 7 p.m. Thursday, May 1, in the Clayton Performing Arts Center on the Hardin Valley Campus, 10915 Hardin Valley Road.

“The Spring Choral Concert will feature our Concert Chorale and Variations Ensemble in our usual wide variety of choral music offerings,” said Bill Brewer, program coordinator of Music and associate professor of Liberal Arts. “Selections will range from classical to Broadway show tunes to African-American spirituals.

“A highlight of this year’s final concert will be a performance by the alumni choir. We are really looking forward to having these former students back on campus and singing with us again.”

The event is free and the community is invited. Donations will be accepted at the door for the Pellissippi State Foundation on behalf of the Music Scholarship Fund.

The Concert Chorale and Variations groups are composed of a wide cross-section of students from a variety of majors. The Variations Ensemble is preparing for a study abroad and concert opportunity overseas in May, in collaboration with the Tennessee Consortium for International Studies.

The Spring Choral Concert is the last in a string of performances during Pellissippi State’s yearlong Music Concert Series. The series is part of The Arts at Pellissippi State, which brings to the community cultural activities ranging from music and theatre to international celebrations, lectures, and the fine arts. All piano performances and accompaniments will be performed on Steinways, in keeping with Pellissippi State’s status as an All-Steinway School.
