BSC hosts Williston State College for joint concert March 3
Posted on 2/27/2013
Bismarck State College and Williston State College combine voices for an afternoon chorale concert Sunday, March 3, at 3 p.m. in BSC's National Energy Center of Excellence Bavendick Stateroom.
Directors Herbert Parker of WSC and Andrew Miller and Dawn Hagerott of BSC will conduct student vocal groups from each college during the free concert.
This first-time music collaboration between the two colleges was arranged after WSC visited the BSC campus last year.
"Herb and I felt it was such a great experience for our students that we wanted to take it to the next level and give a concert together," Miller said. "There is a good chance it will become a tradition in years to come."
Performing from Williston State are the Concert Chorale, Concert Choir and the Select Singers. BSC groups are the Concert Choir, Chamber Singers, Men's Ensemble and the Women's Ensemble.
The program will feature a variety of music from classical selections to Grand Funk Railroad. Works by Bruckner and Barnum are included plus two original compositions by Miller, BSC assistant professor of music.
A reception of snacks and beverages follows the concert.
