Young Harris College Hosts Spring Choral Concert

YOUNG HARRIS, Ga. – The Young Harris College Concert Choir and Chamber Choir are proud to come together with the Mountain Community Chorus and the North Georgia Symphony to present two performances of choral masterworks on Saturday, March 17, at 7 p.m. in the Glenn~McGinnis Hall on the YHC campus and on Sunday, March 18, at 3 p.m. at Murphy United Methodist Church. Both concerts are free and open to the public.

The program will include a variety of music from the height of the Classical Era, all the way through to modern composers such as Eric Whitacre. The evening will feature many pieces including Whitacre’s “Five Hebrew Love Songs” with violin soloist Laurin Smith, Mozart’s “Regina Coeli,” Franz Schubert’s “Mass in G,” and selections from the music of Gilbert and Sullivan.

The YHC Chamber Choir and Concert Choir are under the direction of Professor of Music, Director of Choral and Vocal Activities and Musical Theatre Program Co-Coordinator Jeff Bauman. YHC Staff Accompanist Anita Guss will provide accompaniment on the piano during the performance.
