Spring Choir ConcertApril 3rd, 2014 - April 4th, 2014
Marshall, Mo. (March 28, 2014) — The Missouri Valley College Division of Fine Arts will present the MVC Concert Choir in a Spring Concert on April 3-4 at 7:30 p.m. nightly in the Eckilson-Mabee Theatre.
The Concert Choir, under the direction of Diana Malan, associate professor of music and theatre, will perform selections by Pepper Choplin, Craig Hella Johnson, the Beatles, John Leavitt and Mark Hayes. Musical selections from popular movies and musicals are also featured at the concert including: “The Water is Wide,” “Danny Boy,” and “Safe & Sound” from the “Hunger Games;” “Blackbird” and “Over the Rainbow” from “The Wizard of Oz,” and “For Good” from “Wicked.”
“For this concert I wanted music that was traditional and familiar and that was arranged with a fresh, new approach,” Malan said. “I also chose music that celebrated historical milestones such as the 50th anniversary of the Beatles coming to the USA, the 75th anniversary of “The Wizard of Oz” and the 10th anniversary of ‘Wicked.’”
The concert also features four applied voice students. The students will perform selections from their jury pieces; their titles include “Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child,” “I Who Have Nothing,” “Skylark” and “On My Own” from “Les Miserables.”
Area students involved in the show are: Emily Adams, senior from Marshall, Mo.; Derrian Blumhorst, sophomore from Marshall, Mo.; Amy Huff, senior from Marshall, Mo.; Kaylee McEachern, freshman from Slater, Mo.; Stormy Morrison, senior from Marshall, Mo.; Kali Stark, sophomore from Marshall, Mo.; Jeron Tetteh, sophomore from Marshall, Mo.; Justin Weathers, sophomore from Texas; and Megan Weathers, sophomore from Texas.
