ABAC Concert Choir Presents Spring Concert April 17

TIFTON –Voices from the Concert Choir, the Chamber Singers, and the Jazz Singers will blend in perfect harmony on April 17 at 7 p.m. during the annual ABAC Spring Choral Concert in Howard Auditorium at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College. The concert is open to the community at no charge.

Dr. Susan Roe, Fine Arts Department Head and Director of Choral Music at ABAC, will conduct the groups during the evening. Dr. Andy Lagrimas, Assistant Professor of Piano and Theory at ABAC, will serve as accompanist for the concert.

Roe said the recital will begin with the Concert Choir performing “The Star Spangled Banner” followed by the ABAC Alma Mater. Choir members will then sing Aaron Copeland’s captivating pieces “Zions Walls” and “At the River.”

The ABAC Jazz Singers will take center stage to perform Cole Porter’s “You’d Be So Nice To Come Home To” and Mercer and Harold Arlen’s “Come Rain or Come Shine.”

The ABAC Chamber Singers will put a different spin on the night and take the crowd to a faraway culture with “Ukuthula,” a Zulu folk song for peace and “Wana Baraka,” a Kenyan folk song. The Chamber Singers will conclude their portion of the evening with Morten Lauridsen’s “Sure On This Shining Star.”

The concert will conclude with the ABAC Concert Choir performing Michael Engelhardt’s “Wayfaring Stranger.”
