Photo bombs, unforgettable moments and Taiwanese culture, are what students, faculty, staff members and the community should look forward to experiencing at the Spring Choral Concert Friday, April 17 at 7:30 p.m.
Since returned from his time abroad, Choral and Vocal Director Scott Tuomi is excited to show the audience pictures of what he and the Chamber Singers experienced during their trip to Taiwan over winter break.
This year, the concert will feature some Taiwanese, Mandarin and Hakka pieces that the students learned in Taiwan.
Along with these cultural pieces, students will also be featuring recreated compositions from Johann Sebastian Bach, Leonard Bernstein, Eric Whitacre and William Byrd. An 11-year-old soprano soloist Seth Travino will also perform alongside Pacific University students.
“It is going to be a beautiful program with great music,” said Tuomi. “I love that moment when it all comes together and I get chicken skin, it’s the greatest experience I know. I want people to feel that as well.”
The Spring Choral Concert will be free for students, faculty and staff members.
Local high school students with their school identification cards will also be able to attend the concert for free.
This concert will be open to the public, covering a general admission of $7 and $5 for senior citizens.
