Dr. Will Carswell, director of the Coker Singers and the Coker Chamber Singers announced this afternoon that the Singers will be performing next April with the South Carolina Philharmonic Orchestra. This ishttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gif going to be a tremendous honor for both the Singers and the College.http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gif
This is the announcement that Dr. Carswell shared:
I wanted to share some exciting news with you. Yesterday the Coker Singers were officially invited to join the South Carolina Philharmonic Orchestra in a performance of Beethoven's 9th Symphony next season. The April 2012 concert is the season finale for the SC Philharmonic and is sure to be a sell-out. This is a rare opportunity for our students to perform a monumental work in the history of Western classical music. And it's pretty cool for me too since I have never had the chance to prepare this work!
The performance next April will mark the fifth time the Coker Singers have performed with the SC Philharmonic since 2006 and the ONLY college or university choir to have sung with them during that time. Congratulations singers!
