MOUNT OLIVE — The University of Mount Olive Department of Music will hold a prism concert on Thursday, Oct. 13, at 7:30 p.m. in the Hazel Waters Kornegay Assembly Hall, 207 Wooten St., Mount Olive.
A prism concert is an interactive concert in which all of the UMO music groups participate, including Concert Band, Jazz Band, Concert Choir, Chamber Choir, Free Spirit and various soloists. The music is continuous with the performers arranged in different positions around Assembly Hall. “Our Prism Concerts are spectacular because of the talent, personnel, and performance space involved. Historic Assembly Hall is the perfect venue for UMO ensembles and soloists to create music alongside each other,” says Dr. Franklin Gross, chair of the Department of Music.
The Symphonic Band will perform W. Francis McBeth’s Chant & Jubilo, and two movements, Burlesque & March, from Vincent Persichetti’s Divertimento for Band, Op. 42. Jazz Band will perform John Coltrane’s “Mr. P.C.” and one other work. The woodwind ensemble is performing Minuet in C by Wolfgang A. Mozart. The Concert Choir will perform a medley from West Side Story. Free Spirit will perform “Hallellujah, What A Savior” a cappella, and “Truth is Marching On,” and Chamber Choir will be featured.
Admission to the concert is free. For more information about the event, please contact Dr. Gross at [email protected]
