On Saturday evening, March 9, at 7:30 p.m., the Culver-Stockton College Concert Choir and Band will present a concert in the sanctuary. It is the first stop on their 2019 concert tour.
The Concert Choir is the premier choral ensemble at Culver-Stockton College, and the singers in the group represent a variety of majors and previous experiences. The tie that binds this group together is their individual commitment to the pursuit of excellence in the performance of choral music. The Concert Choir has performed by invitation at the National Cathedral in Washington D.C., with the Quincy Symphony Orchestra, and for the Missouri Music Educators Association Conference. It has undertaken a national or international tour annually for nearly 70 years.
The Wind Ensemble and Jazz Ensemble will also be a part of the tour. These groups perform band and wind ensemble music, and a variety of jazz and contemporary styles in a standard big band instrumentation. Musicians in both ensembles are chosen by audition and must also be members of the Symphonic Band.
