BRISTOL, Tenn., April 18, 2017 – King University’s Music program will present two choral concerts in April in King’s Memorial Chapel on the main campus in Bristol, Tenn. The Symphonic Choir and Collegium Musicum will perform on Friday, April 21 at 7:30 p.m., and the Jazz Choir, Men’s Ensemble, and Women’s Ensemble will perform on Saturday, April 22 at 7:30 p.m.

“The Friday concert of Symphonic Choir and Collegium Musicum features some favorite pieces from past years that the choirs have performed – a nod to the sesquicentennial anniversary,” said W. Patrick Flannagan, professor of Music and director of choral activities at King University. “Marjy Larson will be conducting one piece and freshman Kaitlin Rivera will assist us with Irish penny whistle on one piece. As always, the concert will finish with “I’m in His Care” and will include any choir alumni in the audience.”

Saturday’s concert, highlighting the Jazz Choir, Men’s Ensemble, and Women’s Ensemble will be under the direction of Shea Clay, assistant professor of Music. The concert will feature a wide variety of musical styles including jazz, gospel, Broadway, barbershop, do-wop, folk, pop, contemporary a cappella, and classical.
