Lipscomb Presents Spring Choral Concert

The Lipscomb University Department of Music will present its spring choral concert, featuring the university’s A Cappella Singers and University Singers, April 22 at 8 p.m. at the Cathedral of the Incarnation, 2001 West End Ave., Nashville.
The event is open to the public and admission is free.
Each ensemble will perform several pieces, said Dr. Larry Griffith, professor of music and director of the choruses. Of note among the A Cappella Singers’ program is “Tres Cantos Nativos Dos indios Krao,” a set of three songs by Brazilian composer Marcos Leite.
“The songs are freely based on melodies sung by the Krao tribe, a group of native Brazilian Indians who live in the Xingu River area of the Amazonia forest of northwestern Brazil,” Griffith said.
The University Singers will feature “Fa una canzona” by Orazio Vecchi and “Il est bel et bon” by Passereau, Griffith said.
The A Cappella Singers is composed of music majors, minors and vocal scholarship recipients at Lipscomb. Its repertoire normally includes a major work plus selections from sacred and secular literature, Griffith said.
The University Singers provides an opportunity for involvement in a choral ensemble to a broad range of students. This group’s repertoire varies from sacred to secular, unaccompanied to accompanied, and from madrigals to modern pop or show tunes, he said.
The A Cappella Singers and University Singers are among eight ensembles available to students at Lipscomb. Others include the Opera Workshop, String Ensemble, Concert Band, Jazz Band, Jazz Vocal Ensemble, and Early Music Consort. Approximately 80 students major in the department, which holds fully accredited membership in the National Association of Schools of Music.
