Eastern’s Chamber Choir joins USU’s choirs for performance at St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church
USU Eastern’s chamber students traveled to Logan on Oct. 1, joining the three choirs from the USU campus in the St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church for a concert titled, “2015 Voices of Heaven.”
The opening number of the concert featured 150 singers from the USU Chamber Singers and USU Chorale, USU Women’s Choir and Eastern’s choir singing “Amazing Grace.” Three bagpipes, a drummer and organ provided the instrumental music with the arrangement by Mack Wilberg.
“The sound was amazing,” said Kay Fox, director of the Price choir.
The USU Chamber Singers and USU Chorale are under the direction of Cory Evans while the USU Women’s Choir is under the direction of Luke Shepherd. All four choirs are in the Caine College of the Arts.
Eastern’s choir next sang a gospel piece titled “Hallelujah!” which was inspired by Jeremiah 20:11-13 and arranged by Rosephanye Powell. Fox said the USU Eastern students worked hard, knew their music well and performed wonderfully.
Fox said her choir was energized and sounded great. “We had a great trip and are looking forward to performing the “Messiah” in December and a return trip to Logan in the spring for another concert. “It was a great experience.”
