A Minnesota-based men's chorus acclaimed as "the premier men's vocal ensemble in the United States" by Fanfare magazine will perform at Albany State University.
Songs from their latest album, "On the Shoulders of Giants" will be showcased during the ASU performance. The newest release from the ensemble celebrates the influence and inspiration of composers who have made an indelible mark in music with works that are both timeless and instantly recognizable. The album's repertoire spans nearly a thousand years and includes early works of vocal melody to the rock sound of U2's "MLK" and works by Sibelius, Mendelssohn, Schubert and Randall Thompson.
"We're tremendously excited about the group's upcoming concert and master-class, certainly because of what I anticipate will be a life changing experience for some, but also because the two events represent the fact that ASU continues to deliver on its commitment to be Southwest Georgia's leader in arts education and programs of exceptional quality," Bynum added.
Tickets for $15, $10 and $5 are available at the Civic Center Box Office and on the evening of the performance at the Municipal Auditorium Box Office.For more information about the performance or tickets, telephone the ASU Department of Fine Arts Department at 229-430-4849.
