Campbell University Choir Concert Coming To Kill Devil Hills
Outer Banks Presbyterian Church’s Music Ministry will host the Campbell University College Choir in concert on Wednesday, March 9, at 7:30pm.
The Campbell University Choir is the principal vocal ensemble of the Music Department in the College of Arts and Sciences at CU. In addition to students who major or minor in music, choir personnel includes students from a variety of academic majors, all sharing equally in the music-making process.
The University Choir has a rich heritage spanning more than 55 years, and has performed for audiences all over North Carolina and the Southeast. The Spring 2016 tour is a Murphy-to-Manteo North Carolina tour, concerts dotted across our great state from the western mountains to the Outer Banks. Recent international tours have taken the choir to Central Europe, Ireland and Italy.
This spring’s program consists of repertoire both sacred and secular as well as some classic hymns and spirituals. Highlights include some new music that the choir performed at Campbell Music’s recent festival for the Southeastern (U.S.) Composer’s league,
Campbell Voices, a 14-member chamber ensemble, drawn from members of the University Choir, will also perform lighter selections.
Dr. Phillip Morrow is Director of Choral Activities at Campbell and is conductor of the University Choir. Dr. Morrow has been part of the music faculty at CU since 1998, teaching in the areas of conducting, voice, and church music. Catherine Hamner is staff accompanist in the department, and accompanist for the choir.
