UC Music Department Holds Annual Homecoming Concert

 


WILLIAMSBURG, KY.— University of the Cumberlands’ (UC) Music Department held its annual Homecoming Concert in celebration of UC’s 125th Anniversary on Friday, October 4 in the Nell Moore Recital Hall.

The concert featured four vocal ensembles and one instrumental ensemble—Cumberland Singers, Chamber Choir, Show Choir, Chorale and Appalachian Brass Quintet—and performed selections from both spiritual and popular music.

“My Lord, My Life, My All,” “Seasons of Love” and “Down By the Riverside” were just a few of the pieces performed to an enthusiastic audience, and concert-goers especially enjoyed Show Choir’s costumed rendition of “A Tribute to Queen,” danced to the choreography of UC alum Stacey Edwards Wilhite.

The packed auditorium offered standing room only as Chorale students—directed by Dr. David Etter—were joined onstage by UC alums to sing “Battle Hymn of the Republic.”

The Homecoming Concert is an annual event held each year on the Friday evening of UC’s Homecoming celebration. The event is not only special to current UC students and families but also to UC alums who regularly return to perform with their alma mater.
