KENNESAW, Ga.—The Kennesaw State University Community and Alumni Choir will return to the stage for an exciting, new performance on Nov. 20 at 8 p.m. in the Performance Hall of the Dr. Bobbie Bailey & Family Performance Center. The concert, “That’s All Folk…Songs!” will feature a variety of folk songs from many different countries.
Leslie Blackwell, KSU associate professor of music and music education, will direct the performance. Blackwell describes the concert as a “trip across the ocean” and around the world. The choir will perform American, Canadian, Celtic, Scottish, Irish, English and Argentinean folk songs that include “I Love My Love,” “Wade in the Water,” “Mata de Anima Sola” and “The Dark-Eyed Sailor.” Sherri Barrett will serve as principal accompanist on piano, along with guest accompanist Sarah Stedman. Ron Chenoweth, president of the KSUCAC, says, “The concert promises to have a few surprises.”
The KSU Community and Alumni Choir is an all-volunteer choir composed of 90 members of the KSU community and beyond, including alumni, community members and KSU faculty and staff, who represent a wide variety of musical backgrounds. Now in its third season, the KSUCAC has experienced tremendous growth since beginning in Sept. 2007.
As a choir, the KSUCAC seeks “to present a wide variety of sacred and secular choral music of high artistic quality.” A non-profit organization, the KSUCAC does not require auditions for membership but only a love of choral music and the community.
Tickets for the performance are $10. To purchase tickets, please visit the KSU Box Office or call 770-423-6650.
