FLORENCE, S.C. – Francis Marion University’s Department of Fine Arts will present its annual Spring Choral Concert on Sunday, April 22 at 4:30 p.m.
The concert will be in the Hyman Fine Arts Center’s Adele Kassab Recital Hall on the FMU campus. Admission is free and open to the public.
Three FMU choral groups – the Concert Choir, FMU Singers and Cut Time – will perform, as will the newly formed FMU String Ensemble, which is under the direction of Terry Roberts. The choral groups are directed by Sue Butler Orr, assistant professor of music and director of choral programs at FMU, and accompanied by Rebecca Culbertson.
The Concert Choir’s six-song program will include selections by Mozart and Stephen Foster, as well as a solo by tenor Harry McFadden of Florence.
The FMU Singers, a group of nine women, will then perform a medley of Broadway songs followed by other selections from well-known musicals. Soloists Michele Ford of Myrtle Beach and Leslie Thomas of Walterboro will be featured.
Francis Marion’s show choir, Cut Time, will conclude the program with group numbers, solos and duets. This eight-member group is selected each semester based on a singing and dancing audition. Cut Time’s program will include “Let Me Entertain You” and “Night Fever.” Terri Timmons and Brent Ard, both of Pamplico, will sing “I Got You, Babe.” Various group members will sing solos.
