JBU Cathedral Choir to Perform in Siloam Springs
Siloam Springs, Ark. (March 23, 2010) — The John Brown University Cathedral Choir will conclude their spring tour with a concert on Tuesday, March 30 at 7:30 p.m. in the Cathedral of the Ozarks on the campus of JBU. The concert is free and open to the public.
The Cathedral Choir is comprised of 51 of the most qualified singers at JBU. The choir’s long standing tradition of excellence began in 1942.
“John Brown University continues to uphold the very best tradition of excellence in choral singing,” said Paul Smith, choir director and professor of music at JBU. “From the 17th century exuberance of Hans Leo Hassler’s ‘Cantate Domino’ and the eight part rich sonorities of Rachmaninoff’s ‘Glory be to God’ to the 21st century foot tapping spiritual of Rollo Dilworth’s ‘Roll Jordan, Roll!’ the choir will bring to audiences music that will inspire them.”
In 2008 the Cathedral Choir recorded CD in Belfast, Northern Ireland at the famed St. Mark’s, home church of C. S. Lewis. The CD will be on sale at each of the choir’s appearances.
