Siloam Springs, Arkansas (March 20, 2012) — The John Brown University Cathedral Choir will conclude their spring tour with a concert on Tuesday, March 27 at 7:30 p.m. in the Berry Performing Arts Center on the campus of JBU. The concert is free and open to the public.
The Cathedral Choir, comprised of 54 of the most qualified singers at JBU, will perform pieces ranging from the early 17th century to pieces newly composed in 2012. Audiences will hear many different styles of music, from Heinrich Schütz’s sublime “Selig sind die Toten” to Moses Hogan’s rousing spiritual “Didn’t my Lord Deliver Daniel?” Other pieces include “The Sounding Sea” by Barnum, a South African song of hope entitled “Tshotsholoza,” as well as beautiful arrangements of hymns.
The choir has toured extensively all over the United States and in Northern Ireland. In addition to annual tours, the choir is featured in the annual Candlelight Service at JBU each December.
In 2011 the Cathedral Choir recorded a CD in Belfast, Northern Ireland at the famed St. Mark’s Cathedral, home church of C. S. Lewis. The CD will be on sale at each of the choir’s appearances.
