Some people in Livingston finished up their weekends with a choir performance.
The Birmingham Southern College Concert Choir performed Saturday at Livingston's First Presbyterian Church. The performance is part of a four day tour the choir is on, going through Alabama and Tennessee. James Cook is a professor of music and Chairman of the Department of Music at Birmingham Southern College. He describes the concert.
"The program this year consist of of a mixture of sacred and secular music for choir instruments. And when i say instruments, it's a little unusual. It's drums and rattles and rain sticks. It's interesting music," says Cook.
We spoke to a few of the choir members about their experiences with the group.
"Well, it's so much fun. First of all, I feel honored that so many people have wanted to hear sing and that we've had the opportunity to sing for so many people and share our gift with so many people outside of our school and outside of the state of Alabama," says Christina McCauley, the President of the choir.
"The choir tour gives us an opportunity to not only share music, but also a little bit about our artistic community in Birmingham is about. We have an incredible choral and music program and this is an opportunity for us to showcase our talent and the wonderful people that we sing with, as well as share wonderful music with the communities we visit," says Brad Robinson, the Vice President of the choir.
The 47 mixed-voice ensemble tours extensively and has made appearances in Europe, and at regional and national conventions of the American Choral Directors Association. The choir tour started this past Thursday. It wrapped up today in Tuscaloosa
