Johnson University’s Music and Worship Department will hold its annual Honors Concert in the Alumni Memorial Chapel tonight at 7 p.m. The concert is free and open to the public.
“The Music Department and SCCA invite the entire campus community to the Honors Concert to show support for these students and their good preparation for the evening,” Brent Weaver, associate professor of music, wrote.
The concert will feature the Johnson University Campus Choir, the Johnson University Tour Choir, and vocal soloists Chelsea Roller and Emily Jackson.
Roller and Jackson, vocal students of Robert Chambers, passed an audition and were invited to participate in the concert.
Weaver said that the audition to participate in the concert was new this year.
In addition to the soloists, other groups will perform.
“The Campus Choir, under the direction of Dr. Chambers and accompanied by Mr. Donald Trentham, will present four songs featuring one song with student soloist Jackie Eifert,” Weaver said in a written statement.
The Tour Choir will present five songs, including one in particular with eight vocal parts infused with some jazz harmonies.
Weaver directs the Tour Choir.
