Come out to hear some great music from Regent University’s own students!
The overall look
For months, students across campus have been practicing music, singing it over and over until every note is perfected. Now, as a grand finale to the 2017-18 school year, Regent University is ready to produce its first ever Spring Concert. At 8 p.m. on May 4, Regent University Choir, Regent University Chamber Choir, First Edition, the Regent University Singers, and select soloists will come together to perform a variety of musical numbers. Performances by the choirs will include “With a Voice of Singing,” “Seal Lullaby,” “Shenandoah,” and “Oh Happy Day.” While a majority of the music will be sacred, there will be a few secular numbers. All the music will come from a wide variety of genres, spanning across gospel, classical, pop, and more.
Differences from the Christmas Concert
Well, as Dr. Krudop, Regent’s Director of Choral Activities put it, the main difference will be, “No Christmas music.” While Regent students are able to attend for free, there will a charge of $6 per person for the general public (non-students). You can purchase tickets at the box office (1 p.m. – 5 p.m., Monday – Friday), or online. In an interview with Dr. Krudop, he informed me that the music students have made incredible progress in their musicianship, stating “I think the work they’ve done has earned them the right to have an enthusiastic, full house.”
Like what you hear?
Regent’s choirs are always on the lookout for new members. University Choir is open to both staff and students while Chamber Choir is students-only and worth one credit a semester. Although Chamber Choir is currently all-female, it is the hope of Dr. Krudop to see it become a mixed group of both men and women. So, come on out to listen, and if you like what you hear, shoot Dr. Krudop an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. He would be happy to meet with you about joining either of the groups. Or, if soloing is more your style, you can register to take a Vocal Practicum class which will give you one-on-one training at one credit per semester.
As previously stated, the performance will happen May 4 at 8:00 p.m. Tickets for Regent students are free, but there will be a charge of $6 per person for the general public. So, if you know someone performing, or if you know someone who knows someone, or even if you don’t know anybody at all – come on out to experience this amazing finale for our year!
