High school students performing in 2009 Women's Choral Day concert
KENNESAW, Ga.—For the third consecutive year, the Kennesaw State University School of Music will provide metro-Atlanta female high school students with the opportunity to perform in the Women’s Choral Day concert. The performance will take place on Oct. 6 at 7:30 p.m. in the Performance Hall of the Dr. Bobbie Bailey & Family Performance Center and will feature students from five counties and 10 different schools.
The students arrive on the morning of the concert and rehearse all day for the program which takes place that evening. KSU voice faculty will be providing voice lessons and vocal instruction throughout the day. The high school students will benefit from the unique opportunity to sing in a choir of nearly 300 young women as well as to learn many different types of choral music.
"We excited to host 281 ladies on campus for the 3rd annual KSU Women's Choral Day," says Alison Mann, assistant professor of choral music education and coordinator of the event. "We have an exciting program planned and the evening concert will not disappoint."
The concert program includes: "Joy" by Jocelyn Hagan; "I Know Not How it is With You" by Judith Herrington; "El Monigote" Arranged by Diana V. Saez; and "My Soul's Been Anchored in the Lord" Arranged by Moses Hogan and Rollo Dilworth.
In previous years, the day-long event successfully prepared and produced a complete concert in less than 12 hours. The KSU Women’s Choral day concert also provides audience members with the unique experience of hearing almost 300 female high students in performance.
The event is free. For information and directions, contact the KSU box office or at 770-423-6650.
