Spring Choir Concert Wraps Up Founders Day Weekend

The A Cappella Choir and the SC Singers will perform their final concert of the year on Sunday, April 22, at 3 p.m., in the Richardson Performing Arts Center on the campus of Southwestern College. There is no admission charge and the community is invited to attend.

“It’s been a great year,” says David Gardner, director of choirs at Southwestern College.  “In the fall we had the joy of dedicating our newly refurbished performance space, and now we look forward to sharing the talents of this gifted group of students with Winfield and the surrounding community in our last concert of the year.”

According to Gardner, the concert will feature solos by several of this year’s seniors as well as younger students, and the musical styles will range from Baroque to jazz.

The concert concludes the college’s Founders’ Day weekend celebrations.  Other musical events include the Symphony on the Prairie on Friday, April 20, 4-10 p.m.; the Fine Arts Hall of Fame induction ceremony at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, and Reuter organ dedication and concert in Richardson Performing Arts Center at 8 p.m. Saturday.

Devices to assist those with hearing problems are available in the box office, and an area is reserved for handicapped patrons and their companions in the rear of the hall.
