Combined Greenville and Edwardsville Choirs and Orchestras to Perform Spring Concert on May 4

Greenville College will host choral singers and orchestral players from Edwardsville High School, Greenville College, and Greenville Free Methodist Church for a Spring Choral-Orchestral Concert on Sunday, May 4 at 4:00 p.m. in Whitlock Music Center on the campus of Greenville College (Greenville, IL). The concert, entitled “In Memoriam,” will celebrate the lives of loved ones and include ‘classic’ compositions by Johannes Brahms, Felix Mendelssohn, Jean Berger, and Randall Thompson, in addition to some glorious new music by the young Norwegian composer Ola Gjeilo.

Over 150 vocalists and 40 string orchestra members ranging in age from high school and college students to retired community members will perform in the event. They are being prepared by several area teachers (Lynda Marshall and Carli Bates from Edwardsville High School, as well as Charity Briles and Lynda Marshall from Greenville College) and assisted by five professional instrumentalists from the St. Louis area. Ms. Sarah Todd, Piano Instructor at Greenville College, will serve as accompanist. Dr. Jeff Wilson, Director of Choral Activities and Chair of the Department of Music at Greenville College, will conduct the concert.

Seating for the concert will begin at 3:30 p.m. An offering will be taken to help defray the costs of the concert. 

For those who are not able to attend the performance, the concert will be broadcast live on WGRN, 89.5 FM.  

For more information about “In Memoriam,” please contact the Greenville College Department of Music at (618) 664-6560.
