Wednesday, May 05, 2010
CANTON, Mo. – The Culver-Stockton College Fine Arts Division will present their annual “Pops” Concert on Friday, May 7, at 7 p.m. in the Alexander Campbell Auditorium, located in the Robert W. Brown Performing Arts Center on the C-SC campus.
The concert will open with the C-SC Chamber Choir. Among their selections is a “unique” work entitled Jabberwocky—taken from the story Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll.
“Composed in the style of a Heroic Epic, Jabberwocky contains several interesting sound effects and is comprised mainly of non-sense syllables,” said Dr. Kevin Baker, associate professor of music and director of choral activities.
The Collegiate Choir will complete the first half of the concert by performing a 15-minute collection of songs from Les Miserables including "I Dreamed a Dream" and "Do you Hear the People Sing."
Following a brief intermission, the Symphonic Band, under the direction of assistant professor of music and director of bands Trent A. Hollinger, will present Four Symphonic Dances from West Side Story by Leonard Bernstein. Dr. Thomas Polett, associate professor of music and chairperson of the Fine Arts Division, will lead the Jazz Ensemble in Big Mama Cass by Don Sebesky, Feels So Good by Chuck Mangione, Engine No. 9 by Les Hooper, and Hey Pachuco arranged by Shane Porter. Additionally, the Jazz Ensemble will be featuring graduating seniors Ben Abts on baritone saxophone, Tony Webb on alto saxophone, and Jamie "Sarge" Schloz on drums.
This event is free and open to the public. For more information about this event, contact the C-SC Fine Arts Division at firstname.lastname@example.org or 573-288-6413.
