HIGH POINT, N.C., Feb. 8, 2011 ? High Point University will celebrate its talented student musicians with an evening of diverse music at the Department of Music Choral and Instrumental Winter Concert, to be held at 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 26 in the Pauline Theatre of the Hayworth Fine Arts Center. The event is open to the public. In March, many of these same students will perform solo concerts at Carnegie Hall.

The concert will feature several ensembles from the university family, including the Chapel Choir, University Singers, Chamber Singers, and Symphonic Band.

The concert will also conclude with a combined performance of the High Point University Alma Mater.

“The groups will perform many engaging works within the program that celebrate the rich diversity of musical talent that exists on the HPU campus,” says Dr. Marc Foster, chair of the Department of Music and director of choral activities at HPU. “We hope that everyone will join us for an evening of great music to witness what our students have to offer.”
