STEPHENVILLE — Tarleton State University choirs will present their spring concert at 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 22, in the Clyde H. Wells Fine Arts Center Theater in Stephenville.
Tickets are $5, or free with a Tarleton ID. The box office opens at 6:30 the night of the show.
The student conductor experience is a vital part of future music educators’ preparation, and the concert will feature several student conductors, including Gerry Ongmanchi with Healey Willan’s “Rise Up My Love, My Fair One,” Barrett Monk with Moses Hogan’s “Hear My Prayer,” Michael Holbach with Sanctus No. III by J.S. Bach; Caitlin Hoffman with Allan Koepke’s “Dance on My Heart,” London Pinder with James Mulholland’s “Measure Me Sky,” Gage McGuffin with Victor Johnson’s setting of “Kuimba,” and Maxwell Tindall with Andrea Ramsey’s arrangement of “Tell My Father” from the Civil War.
Students from the Chamber Choir will have just returned from a tour to DFW schools and will be eager to sing for their home audience.
The Chamber Choir, Texan Riders, Texan Harmony and Texan Troubadours will perform several works, including the premier of composer Chris Harris’ “Joy Never Leaves,” Ola Gjeilo’s haunting “Ubi Caritas” setting, Kinley Lange’s “Esto Les Digo,” and a set of classic barbershop selections — “We’ll Meet Again,” “Mr. Sandman” and “Shine on Me.
