Indiana State Fall Choral Showcase Concert coming up

TERRE HAUTE — The Indiana State University School of Music will present a Fall Choral Showcase Concert at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 4 in University Hall Theater.

The concert will feature the Women’s Glee Club, Sycamore Singers and Concert Choir.

“The music is going to be quite diverse,” said Mark Carlisle, conductor and faculty member in the ISU School of Music, “and spans a considerable amount of time.”

Opening the concert, the Women’s Glee Club will perform works by contemporary composers Victor C. Johnson, J. David Moore, David Childs, Paul Ayres and Karen Linford Robinson. This semester the ensemble is led by graduate conductors Kaleb Abbott and Jason Fishburn.

Next to take the stage will be the Sycamore Singers, led this semester by Carlisle. Among the works to be performed will be two pieces composed by Nancy Cobb Lippens, director of the ISU School of Music. The group will also perform a rendition of “Shenandoah,” an arrangement from the late medieval Latin song collection “Pies Cantiones” and the well-known “The Barber of Seville Overture,” arranged for choir.

The concert will close with a performance by the ISU Concert Choir, led this semester by Interim Director of Choral Activities Steve McDaniel. Works by composers Hugo Distler, Benjamin Britten and Padre Giovanni Martini will be performed by the ensemble. Featured soloists from the ensemble will include: Jocelyn Campbell, soprano; Katie Ulrich, soprano; Abby Cunning, alto; Kaleb Abbott, tenor and Tyler Lemen, bass. Also featured during the work “Four Pastorales,” by composer Cecil Effinger, will be former ISU School of Music faculty member William Denton on oboe. Both the Sycamore Singers and Concert Choir are accompanied by School of Music faculty member Curt Pennington.

Admission to the event is free, and attendance by campus and community members is encouraged. For more information, contact the School of Music at (812) 237-2771.
