About this event:
Armstrong AMT opens its 15th Southeastern Choral Arts Festival (SECAF) with a joint concert performance of its vocal chamber ensemble, the University Singers, and its full choir, the University Chorale, both under the baton of Armstrong director of choral activities, Robert Harris, D.M.A.
Harris has programmed American folk songs The Road Home, by Stephen Paulus and The Nightingale, by Dan Forrest, as well as a lively gospel chart Walk Together Children and Orlando di Lasso’s Italian madrigal Matona mira cara on this delightfully diverse concert.
Originally conceived as a musical gift to the talented high school singers who will perform the following night, the collegiate choirs will sing a program that is also open to the public. Harris said "We are excited to perform for our visiting young artists with whom we’ll share this very stage on Monday."
At Armstrong, in addition to directing the choirs, Harris is professor of voice. He directs I Cantori, Savannah's professional vocal ensemble. Harris holds doctoral and master's degrees from University of Washington and a bachelor's degree from the University of the Pacific.
The concert is at 7:30 p.m. in the Armstrong Fine Arts Auditorium. Please be seated by 7:15 p.m.
Regular general admission seating: Only $6.
Armstrong faculty/staff/students admitted free upon presentation of valid Pirate Card.
