Spring Concert

Morgan, Leah, Amy, Anna, and Ciara

On Sunday we had our Spring Concert "A Festival of Lessons & Anthems: Featuring the Women's Chorale and Male Chorus" at St. Gregory The Great Seminary in Seward. We had a great crowd in attendance and it was fun to sing in a concert again :) Amongst the crowd were our good friends Theo, Amanda, Brittany, Trey, professors, students, our friends' families, and more. 

Songs we performed were: 
Ave Verum Corpus (Arr. Dr. Blersch)
Easter Anthem (Arr. Dr. Blersch)
Great Day (Arr. Howard Helvey)
Set Me As A Seal (Rene Clausen)
The Lord Bless You And Keep You (John Rutter)

Songs the Men performed were:
Cantate Domino (Nancy Hill Cobb)
Erhore Mich (Heinrich Schutz)
It Is Well With My Soul (Robert Sterling)
Veni, Sancte Spritus (Andrea Ramsey)
Bone Aba (Victor C. Johnson)

We both sang:
Voices Raised to You We Offer (Setting by Dr. Blersch)
We Praise You and Acknowledge You (Dr. Ore)
Festival Sanctus (John Leavitt)
Abide With Me (Arr. Moses Hogan)
Hark, I Hear the Harps Eternal (Arr. Alice Parker)

My favorite pieces we performed were the last 3 that we did with the Men - they just sounded awesome! I miss singing in an SATB choir! My favorite hymn was "We Praise You and Acknowledge You;" the choir verse was just awesome.

While we were sad that our family couldn't be there at the concert, Morgan's family, President Friedrich, The Helds, and some friends came and talked to us after the concert :) It was really nice...

  1. Abide with Me is awesome. Awesome.
    I got to sing that when I was in Acapella. So warm and rich. Goosebumps for sure.
    So glad you are enjoying choir - one of my absolute favorite things about Seward was getting to sing in choir.
    Love you guys,
