The University of Tennessee’s School of Music kicked off the 2013-2014 choral concert season on Tuesday, Oct. 8 in the James R. Cox Auditorium. The performing choral ensembles included Men’s Chorale, Concert Choir, Women’s Chorale, and Chamber Singers.
A special preview performance was given in the auditorium lobby by reVOLution and VOLume. These two groups are UT’s Men’s and Women’s Contemporary A cappella Ensembles. Each group gathered in a semi-circle amongst the crowd and performed one song to get the audience excited for the show.
The Men’s Chorale and Concert Choir were conducted by Gene D. Peterson, and Jordan Cross lead as the graduate assistant, while Melony Dodson performed as the accompanist.
UT’s mascot, Smokey, made a guest appearance and assisted the Men’s Chorale in singing Vols Medley. The audience stood up, cheered and sang along.
The Women’s Chorale was conducted by Seth Maples and Jared Cotter performed as the accompanist. The Chamber Singers were conduced by Angela Batey. Jordan Cross lead as the graduate assistant, and Tami Newsom performed as the accompanist.
The choral ensembles will be performing again in early November and the season will continue until early April.
