Limestone Chorus To Perform Spring Concert On Sunday, April 23

Charles Wyatt
Chorus Concert 4-23-23

The Limestone University Chorus will present its Spring Concert on Sunday, April 23, at 3 p.m. inside Fullerton Auditorium.

The program will begin with a selection of early choral music, including works from Bach and Schubert, before proceeding through its “Roaring 20s” theme. Favorite tunes from the 1920s period of dramatic social change include “It Don't Mean a Thing,” “The Varsity Drag,” and others.

Admission to the concert is free and the public is invited to attend.

Guest instrumentalists will include members of the Limestone University Jazz Combo, students playing recorders, and the Limestone Chorus’ accompanist for the last 30 years, Dr. David B. Thompson, at the piano.

Singers in the chorus include Limestone students, as well as members of the Gaffney community. The concert director is Professor of Choral/Vocal Music Education, Dr. Gena E. Poovey.

Often, a theme-based program seems to be the way to go, especially in the spring,” Poovey said. “This is one of those years, and I have thoroughly enjoyed the research involved in planning a program of music that will be interesting for our audience, and educational for student singers. The voices, the variety of instruments, and the songs from various centuries are sure to please the senses on a lovely spring afternoon.”
