The 52 voices of Brigham Young University-Idaho's Collegiate Singers share the Ruth H. Barrus Concert Hall stage at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 10 with Vocal Union. This performance is a pre-show to their Music and the Spoken the Word début with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir on Sunday, March 14, in Salt Lake City.
Their performance will incorporate a wide variety of music and styles from various music periods. These include a soft music piece from the Baroque period, followed by a Russian piece from the Romantic era. Randall Kempton, director of Collegiate Singers, said, "Listeners will be touched very deeply on a spiritual level after listening to our performance."
Vocal Union is a student-led ensemble of 12 singers that performs a variety of musical styles featuring the tight harmonies of vocal jazz, popular big band numbers and classic jazz tunes.
The performance on March 10 will cost $3 for BYU-I students and $6 for the general public.
