OC students to perform seasonal music concerts

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. – Students at Oklahoma Christian University will showcase their musical talents at the university’s upcoming fall concerts. The concerts are free and open to the public.
 
The Department of Music’s choirs will perform on Thursday, Nov. 10 at 7 p.m. in  McIntosh Conservatory. The seasonal instrumental concert will take place a week later in Hardeman Auditorium on Nov. 17 at 7:30 p.m.
 
The vocal concert will feature performances by the OC Chamber Singers and Chorale. The groups will perform a variety of styles, including George Frideric Handel, John Rutter and more.
 
The seasonal instrumental concert will present numbers by the Symphonic Band, Chamber Orchestra and Jazz Ensemble.
 
The Symphonic Band’s portion of the Fall Concert will feature a number of songs, including “Godzilla Eats Las Vegas” by Eric Whitacre. Dr. John Fletcher, Professor of Music, will direct the number and said it’s “about as bizarre as you might expect from the title.”
 
The Chamber Orchestra consists of 21 students and is conducted by Dr. Kathy Thompson. Their selections include Irish fiddle tune “The Cliffs of Moher,” featuring soloist Marina Pendleton. The Jazz Ensemble will perform six short numbers, including “America the Beautiful.”
