"Jabberwocky" Highlights SJC's Fall Concert
The Saint Joseph's College Concert Choir will host its annual Fall Concert on Sunday, November 6 in the Saint Joseph's Chapel on SJC's campus. The concert will begin at 4:00 pm CST and last approximately one hour. Students and members of the community are welcome free of charge.
A variety of choral literature will be performed, including music from the 15th through the 21st century. The Concert Choir, Vocal Jazz Ensemble, Chamber Singers and Full Chord Press, a new barbershop ensemble, will perform at the concert.
"This is probably the most diverse grouping of choral literature we have done in one concert," said SJC Assistant Professor of Music and Director of Choral Activities Kelly A. Ford. "We have exceptionally talented singers this year, and although they are a very young group, I am really pleased with the maturity of the sound they are able to achieve."
A highlight of the concert will be the performance of "Jabberwocky," written by Sam Pottle and based on the poem by Lewis Carroll. In addition to local concerts, the choirs participate in singing at Holy Day Masses on campus and are preparing for several off-site performances throughout the Midwest later this academic year.
"We have an extremely busy schedule for performances," stated Ford. "This concert is just a sample of some of the music the choirs are preparing, but I think it is a performance well worth attending."
Upcoming choral events include the Jazz Fall Show on November 13, as well as the Concert Choir's annual Service of Lessons and Carols on December 4. All SJC concerts are free of charge and open to the public.
