UC Chorale Presents Concert

 


Williamsburg, Ky. - On Friday, April 19th, the University of the Cumberlands’ (UC) Chorale, under the direction of Dr. David Etter, performed an outstanding concert in the Nell Moore Recital Hall on the UC campus. This performance was their annual Spring Concert.

The concert consisted of many acapella spiritual pieces and one piece called, “Sleep,” which they performed in collaboration with the UC band earlier in the year. The song had a lot of dissonant chords and is very difficult for large groups to perform. The chorale performed it wonderfully, in spite of its difficulty.

“The concert went really well and I feel that we worked really hard to create the performance we did,” said UC Chorale President, Tyler Vaughn. “Everyone did an awesome job and the hard work we all put in really pulled through in the end!”

The remainder of the concert was made up of several spiritual pieces and was capped off with a mash up from the famous musical, “Les Miserables”. This piece consisted of many of the well-known songs from the musical and the recently produced movie such as, “At the End of the Day”, “On my Own”, “Castle on a Cloud”, “Do you hear the People Sing?” “I Dreamed a Dream”, and “Bring Him Home”. Many solos were performed during these songs.

Located in Williamsburg, KY, University of the Cumberlands is an institution of regional distinction, which currently offers four undergraduate degrees in more than 40 major fields of student; nine pre-professional programs; seven graduate degrees, including a doctorate and six master’s degrees; certifications in education; and online programs.
