Vol State Singers to Perform "GLORIA"
Nancy Slaughter leads the Vol State Singers. They have a big concert coming up this month and Nancy has this update:
The Vol State Singers will be participating in the Roane State Community College 40th Anniversary Concert on April 29. The concert will take place in the Campus Theatre and will include choirs from five Tennessee community colleges. They will be performing “GLORIA” by Antonio Vivaldi, a Baroque Italian composer. The “GLORIA” is one part of a Catholic Mass that Vivaldi set to music in several sections to create the work.
The mass choir will be accompanied by UT-Knoxville orchestra members. Soloists for the work are comprised of Roane State music faculty. The Vol State Singers have worked diligently all semester to prepare this work and will certainly enjoy such a great opportunity to sing with an orchestra. The group has been so attentive to the work, that they learned it ahead of the intended rehearsal schedule for the class.
The Vol State Singers will depart Sunday, April 29 and head to Harriman, Tennessee, where they will have a big rehearsal with all other singers and the orchestra at 2pm. The concert is free and open to the public at 6pm. Directions to the event may be found on their website: http://www.roanestate.edu/
