Tennessee Wesleyan Choirs To Perform Spring Tour

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

This March Tennessee Wesleyan College’s Concert Choir, Chorale and Vox Humana will be presenting a concert of British and American choral music as part of their 2013 Spring Break Choir Tour. Celebrating the 100th birth year of British composer Benjamin Britten, the first half of the concert will feature works by Handel, Elgar, Vaughan Williams, Holst, and others, culminating in Britten's great choral-organ anthem, "Festival Te Deum." The second half of the concert will feature works by American composers in a variety of different styles. 

The TWC choirs will perform free and public performances on Saturday at Pleasant View UMC, Dalton, at 7 p.m., Sunday at Hixson UMC at 11 a.m. and at Church of the Good Shepherd, Lookout Mountain, Tn., at 6 p.m. and Monday at State Street UMC, Bristol, Tn., at 7 p.m.

"Each year, we're pleased to be able to tour the region and show others what makes our music program and college, so great,” said Dr. Nathan Windt, TWC director of choral activities and assistant professor of music.  

“Our students come from a variety of different backgrounds and study a diverse field of programs, but each year, we collaborate and make excellent music. From anthems in the Anglican tradition to American shape-note hymns and spirituals, these concerts will offer everyone an opportunity to see what's special about Tennessee Wesleyan’s music program."

All TWC Spring Break Choir Tour performances are free and open to the public. For more information, contact Dr. Nathan Windt at 746-5234 or nwindt@twcnet.edu.
