Choralists to be joined by full orchestra on May 3 at 7:30 p.m.
EDMOND, Okla. (April 18, 2012) – Armstrong Auditorium will conclude its 2011-2012 season with a performance by the Herbert W. Armstrong College (HWAC) Choral Union on Thursday, May 3 at 7:30 p.m.
The HWAC Choral Union is composed of 80 of Armstrong College’s finest voices. Together with a full professional orchestra, the choralists plan an uplifting performance featuring Johannes Brahms’Requiem and George Frideric Handel’s Coronation Anthems.
“The choir is comprised of such diverse talents, it’s really astounding that we are performing not one but two choral masterpieces,” Armstrong music director Ryan Malone said. “You have everyone from maintenance men to moms to high school students — and yet when you listen to some of these exquisite melodies they can make, it’s really remarkable. I’m so excited about sharing their efforts with the public.”
The HWAC Choral Union gave the inaugural performance in Armstrong Auditorium, and now they will complete the 2011-2012 concert season.
“We have big plans for our 2012-2013 season,” Shane Granger, Armstrong marketing manager stated. “We’ll announce the season lineup in the coming months, but for now we are looking forward to the Choral Union’s joyous finale.”
Armstrong Auditorium provides a flexible ticket pricing system. Tickets to see the HWAC Choral Union start at $20 for balcony seating and $35 for orchestra seating.
Armstrong Auditorium is also currently host to the world premiere of nearly a dozen archaeological artifacts discovered in Jerusalem in the exhibit, “Seals of Jeremiah’s Captors Discovered.” The interactive exhibit includes figurines, large vessels and royal seal impressions dating to biblical times, which will be on display in the Armstrong Auditorium lobby until October 16, 2012.
