COLLEGE CHOIRS: MILLIKIN UNIVERSITY AND REINHARDT UNIVERSITY CHOIRS, in concert together!
Saturday, January 17, 2015 - 7:00 PM
NATIONALLY RECOGNIZED CHOIR IN CONCERT
The University Choir from Millikin University in Decatur, Illinois, will perform as part of its annual winter tour, showcasing its reputation for innovative programming and tonal variety with repertoire spanning five centuries.
The Choir owns an extensive touring history that includes performances in Scandinavia, Russia, Haiti, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, China, Taiwan, England, and the Baltic region. Additionally the Choir has seven CDs to its credit, including the live recordings of the annual Vespers at Millikin, a tradition that attracts nearly 7,000 attendees. Their recent appearance at the National Convention of the American Choral Director’s Association garnered new attention to the Choir’s dynamic performing style.
The University Choir is under the direction of Dr. Bradley Holmes, Professor of Music and Director of Choral Studies. He has led the choir since 1991.
Georgia's own Reinhardt University Choir, from Waleska and under the direction of legendary conductor Dr. Martha Shaw, will be joining Millikin for this very special combined choir event.
Tickets are $10.00 and may be purchased here:
