KENNESAW, Ga.—The Kennesaw State University Alumni Association is forming a new community chorus under the direction of KSU Assistant Professor of Music Leslie Blackwell. The chorus does not require auditions and is open to both KSU alumni and the community at large.
The new KSU Community and Alumni Choir will hold a workshop in the campus’s new Performance Hall from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 15. Subsequent rehearsals will be held 7-9 p.m. on Monday evenings.
The KSU Community and Alumni Choir will perform a variety of sacred and secular choral music of high artistic quality. “We hope to foster lifelong musicianship in our members,” Blackwell said. “We are very excited to bring this opportunity to our alumni and the community. We believe it will enrich all of us.”
Two concerts already have been scheduled for the choir: the first on Nov. 10 as part of the KSU Homecoming Celebration and the second on April 20, 2008.
