Choir to present home concert

Thursday, February 28, 2008

An all-male rendition of "America the Beautiful" will be part of the A cappella Choir's home concert on March 14.
After performing in 13 venues across the eastern United States during spring break March 1–11, the A cappella Choir of Northwestern College will perform its final tour concert at home in Christ Chapel on Friday, March 14, at 7:30 p.m. Community members are invited.

The ensemble’s three-part concert begins with songs focusing on submission to Christ’s Lordship, followed by virtuosic and humorous selections. It will close with spirituals.

The first part of the concert will include readers’ theatre as vocalists perform pieces like The Conversion of Saul and arrangements of Abide With Me and Give Me Jesus.

Part two features the Heritage Singers chamber choir performing numbers like Flight of the Bumblebee and Tell My Ma. Section two concludes with an all-male rendition of America the Beautiful.

The third part of the concert includes Ain’t No Grave Can Hold My Body Down and the choir’s traditional Beautiful Savior.

Northwestern’s A cappella Choir is directed by Dr. Thomas Holm, who also teaches music at the college and conducts the Sioux County Oratorio Chorus. The 60-voice mixed ensemble has performed across the United States and in Europe.
