Downtown Murfreesboro will be filled with music as the Methodist University Chorale presents a free concert at 7:30 Sunday evening, March 2nd. It will be in historic First Presbyterian Church on the corner of College and Spring Streets, just off the square.
The 38 voice chorale have received world acclaim for their blended voices, powerful arrangements and energy. The Murfreesboro event is a part of an eight city tour by the Methodist University Chorale from Fayetteville, North Carolina.
The Chorale will present works from different musical epochs with special performances by soloists from the group, MU Chamber Singers, and John Drymon, their accompanist. The ensemble consists of 38 vocalists and performs traditional/advanced choral literature.
Students who have been active in choral ensembles in high school or college are encouraged to audition for this choir and earn substantial scholarships. Once students are selected for Chorale, they are members until they graduate.
In addition to the spring tour to a major US city (Orlando, ’09; NYC, ’10; Atlanta, ’11, Boston, ’12, Orlando, ’13), the Chorale performs throughout the Fayetteville/Sandhills region and North Carolina. Next year, the Chorale is planning their first European tour in March, 2015!
