FMU's Cut Time show choir to perform, Dec. 2
Francis Marion University’s show choir, Cut Time, will perform in concert, Thursday, Dec. 2.
The concert will begin at 8 p.m. in the Hyman Fine Arts Center’s Kassab Recital Hall. Admission is free and open to the public.
The 14-member group will sing and dance to music that is all about love. “The biggest challenge,” said Sue Orr, FMU assistant professor of music and choral director, “was finding group songs, solos, and duets with the word ‘love’ in the title. Many songs are about love, but I told the students that all of the songs had to have the word ‘love’ in the title. They did some major searching and came up with an interesting mixture of music.”
The performance will feature 18 such songs, including “Crazy Little Thing Called Love,” “Why Do Fools Fall in Love?” “Love Potion No. 9,” and “I Will Always Love You.”
Cut Time is selected each year by audition and performs for various functions both on and off campus. Last year’s group performed at Disney World, and this year’s group will participate in an adjudicated Music Festivals Cruise to Nassau in April of 2005.
Choreographers are Mikey Tabakian, Kristen Owen, and FMU theatre arts professors D. Keith Best and A. Glen Gourley.
Members of this year’s group, by hometown, are:
Aynor: Matt Brown

Dillon: Joey Webster
