Group Preparing for Spring Choral Concert Tribute to Pete Seeger

Rehearsals begin Monday (Jan. 26) as the Wilmington College-Community Chorus prepares for its annual Spring Choral Concert in April.

The group will meet on Mondays this semester, from 7 to 9 p.m., in Room 208 of WC’s Boyd Cultural Arts Center, according to director Elizabeth Haskins, assistant professor of music. She said the chorus is accepting new members of high school age and older with previous choral or solo experience. Music and folders are provided and solo and small ensemble opportunities are available by audition.

This semester, the College-Community Chorus will prepare a program in tribute to the late singer-songwriter and activist Pete Seeger. They will perform selections either composed by Seeger or frequently associated to the popular culture icon. Numbers include: “Turn, Turn, Turn,” “Where Have All the Flowers Gone?,” “If I Had a Hammer,” “To My Old Brown Earth,” “Guatanamera” and “We Shall Overcome.” Additional program pieces in the modern folk music vein are “Blowin’ in the Wind” by Bob Dylan and Simon & Garfunkel’s “Bridge Over Troubled Water” and “Scarborough Fair.”

More information about the chorus is available by contacting Haskins at her WC office, (937) 382-6661 ext. 334, or via email at
