A cappella Choir to tour across Iowa
Wednesday, March 20, 2013
The A cappella Choir of Northwestern College will perform in seven communities across Iowa April 4–7. They are performing in churches, schools, a senior care center and an opera house. Visit www.nwciowa.edu/choir-tour for concert times and details.
The ensemble’s three-part concert begins with songs that express faith in God in the midst of suffering. It will include a setting of “It is Well With my Soul” by Rene Clausen.
Section two of the concert will feature virtuosic choral works, including “William Tell Overture,” “Bumble Bee” and “Horizons,” which is the story of a massacre of the South African San people.
The concert will conclude with a selection of spirituals and gospel music as well as the choir’s traditional final song, “Beautiful Savior.”
The 45-member A cappella Choir is directed by Dr. Thomas Holm, professor of music at Northwestern and conductor of the Sioux County Oratorio Chorus. The ensemble has performed across the U.S. and in Europe.
The choir will perform its touring concert in Northwestern’s Christ Chapel on Friday, April 12, at 7:30 p.m.
