This year’s theme is “ALL OF US,” based on the final chorus in Craig Hella Johnson’s “Considering Matthew Shepard” and the choral will perform:
- “Flight Song” by Kim Andre Arnesen
- “The Listening” by Cheryl B. Engelhardt
- “Soweto: June, 1976” by Caldwell and Ivory
- “All of Us” by Craig Hella Johnson
The students began rehearsing at 9:00 a.m. and will work through the pieces with conductor Dan Perkins and pianist Charlie Blood until the 7:00 p.m. concert begins in the Silver Center (Hanaway Theatre) at Plymouth State University in Plymouth.
