USU Eastern’s choral department is performing three concerts in the next six weeks.
Today, Oct. 30, is the “Hallow’s Eve Bash” at 12:30 p.m. in the Jennifer Leavitt Student Center’s multipurpose room. Songs including “Thriller,” “Halloween” from the Night Before Christmas,” “Bubble Trouble,” “Deep River” and “Monster Mash/Halloween Melodies” will be performed.
Kay Fox, choir director, said her students are offering a patriotic concert on Wednesday, Nov. 12 at 7 p.m. in the JLSC multipurpose room.
Her largest concert will be the “A Little Bit of Christmas Concert” on Sunday, Dec. 7, at Price City Civic Center at 7:30 p.m. The USU Eastern Chamber Choir, Community Strings and Chorus will all perform that evening.
“Sleigh Ride” will be performed by the Community Strings while the chamber choir performs “Pavane for a Silent Night” by Shafferan/Liebergen and “Rose of Sharon” by Parker/Drennan. The choir, community and strings will combine to perform “He is Born; the Devine Christ Child,” a traditional carol arranged by John Leavitt and “Run to Bethlehem” by Joel Raney.
The Community Choir will sing “What Sweeter Music,” “Carol of the Magi,” “Silent Night,” and “Blow, Blow Thou Winter Wind” arranged by John Rutter. Other songs include “White Christmas” by Irving Berline and arranged by Mac Huff, plus “Good King Kong Looked Out” by P.D.Q, Bach and “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” by Johnny Marks and arranged by Harry R. Wilson.
Fox hopes this concert will be a favorite of the community. All concerts are free and open to the public.
