PC Chamber Singers to perform spring concert
The Piedmont College Chambers Singers will perform their spring concert at 7:30 p.m., March 3, in the college chapel in Demorest. The ensemble, directed by Dr. Wallace Hinson, will be accompanied by Louise Bass on organ.
The theme for the concert is “Psalms, Hymns, and Canticles.” The piece selection includes “Psalm 148” by Gustav Holst, which is the second of his two hymns written in 1912; “The Earth Adorned,” a three-verse hymn by Swedish organist Waldemar Åhlén; and Giles Swayne’s “Magnificat,” an evangelical canticle based on the Gospel of Luke.
The Chamber Singers members are admitted by audition only and perform a wide variety of literature from Renaissance to 21st century pieces. The group is also known for performing ethnic and contemporary choral music, folksongs, and spirituals. The Chamber Singers are a touring group and have performed across the U.S. and Canada.
