The Cameron University Concert Choir and Cameron University Centennial Singers will be joined by the Frederick High School Choir in concert on Thursday, March 4, at 7:30 p.m. in the Cameron University Theatre. Admission to the concert is $6 for adults and $4 for students and military. CU students, faculty and staff are admitted free with a Cameron ID.
The Cameron University Concert Choir, conducted by Dr. Earl Logan and accompanied on piano by Yuika Chan Spannagel, will perform Beethoven's masterpiece, "Christ on the Mount of Olives." This oratorio, depicting the last few hours of Christ's life before he was crucified, is a dramatic piece that presents the emotion of that experience in a vivid way. The final selection from the oratorio is the famous "Hallelujah." After singing this entire work, students will have a new understanding and appreciation for the works of Beethoven.
The Cameron Centennial Singers, conducted by Doris Lambert, will perform pop and jazz hits including the Beatles' "Yesterday," Stevie Wonder's "I Wish," Michael Buble's "Everything", and Johnny Mercer's "Skylark." Additionally the Centennial Singers will perform "O Schoene Nacht" by Johannes Brahms. Student soloists with the Centennial Singers will include Melinda Taylor, Jonathan Phelps, Anjelika Ramsdell, all of Lawton, and Jarod Grice, Altus. The piano accompanist for the Centennial Singers is Kristina Henckel.
The Frederick High School Choir, conducted by Carisa Schreiner, will perform "Come to the Music," and "Nothin' Gonna Stumble My Feet." The choir will also join the Cameron Concert Choir on Beethoven's "Hallelujah," the finale of the oratorio.
