SBU Chorale presents spring concert

BOLIVAR, Mo. – The Chorale of Southwest Baptist University will present its spring concert at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 4, in Pike Auditorium. The performance is free and open to the public.

Under the direction of Dr. James R. Tarrant, director of choral studies and professor of music, the selectively auditioned choir will present a varied program of distinctly American music. The repertoire includes black and white spirituals, colonial music and hymn tunes.

In the past decade, the Chorale has performed at the Missouri Music Educators Association state convention, the Missouri Baptist Convention and numerous churches and high schools across the state.  Since 2005, the Chorale has also performed in cathedrals and other historic venues in Austria, the Czech Republic and Germany, including a rare performance in the “Singers Room” in the Neuschwanstein Castle in Bavaria.
