Fairmont State University Collegiate & Community Choir to perform concert Nov. 11

Fairmont State University Community Arts presents Let There Be Music choral concert on Friday, November 11, at 7:30 pm in the Wallman Hall Theatre on the Campus of Fairmont State University.

Let There Be Music is a joint concert of The Fairmont State Collegiate Singers and Community Choir. The choirs will perform separately and sing several selections together at the concert’s end.

Prof. John Morrison conducts the Fairmont State Collegiate Singers and Community Choir. Let There Be Music features classical and contemporary music and works by Copland, Forrest, Haydn, Manuel, and Ginsberg. The concert presents “Hine Ma Tov” sung by the Collegiate Singers and joined by Bailey Phillips on flute.

“This concert marks not only the final Fall semester concert of our very talented Collegiate Singers but also the first concert of the Community Choir, which has been on hiatus since the pandemic,” says Conductor Prof. John Morrison. “The choirs will be performing a varied program from energetic, upbeat selections to beautiful choral arrangements which show
off the versatility and vocal abilities of our singers. The program includes some international works: Romanian and French Canadian, some musical theatre: selections from My Fair Lady, and some familiar holiday tunes. This concert celebrates the joy of coming together to make beautiful music. The final two combined numbers, “Let There Be Music” and “How Good!” are musical celebrations of what it means to be able to sing together.”

Admission to Let There Be Music is free to the public. Let There Be Music will be performed in the Wallman Hall Theatre on the campus of Fairmont State on Friday, November 11, at 7:30 p.m.
