King University News :: Local Schools Collaborate to Present Mass Gospel Choir Concert Feb. 22

BRISTOL, Tenn., Feb. 18, 2014 – King University along with Northeast State Community College, Milligan College, and East Tennessee State University will join together in a collaborative work on Saturday, February 22 to present the Mass Gospel Choir concert. The concert will take place at the Wellmont Regional Center for the Performing Arts at Northeast State at 7:30 p.m.

“This concert is the brainchild of Tawana Teague, assistant professor of Music for Northeast State,” says W. Patrick Flannagan, professor of Music and director of choral activities at King University. “Tawana wanted to provide an opportunity and venue for choral students from various institutions and various backgrounds to collaborate, both musically and socially. It is a wonderful opportunity for our choirs to join together in partnership and song.”

Choral directors for the concert will include W. Patrick Flannagan for King, Tawana Teague for Northeast State, Noah DeLong, assistant professor of Music for Milligan College, and Laura Terry, director of Multicultural Affairs for ETSU.

Each school’s director will lead their respective choirs in several gospel compositions; they will also share in the direction of the entire mass choir.

Admittance for the Mass Gospel Choir concert at Northeast State Community College will be $10 at the door; students with ID will be admitted free. Funds raised by the concert will be donated to a charitable organization.
