The Department of Music at IUP will present a festive Sound
Choices series concert titled “Home for the Holidays” on Sunday, December 6,
2015. The concert will be performed at 3:00 p.m. in Fisher Auditorium of the
IUP Performing Arts Center.
This communitywide collaboration will feature all
university choral ensembles under the direction of Ryan Beeken, including the Chorale,
Chorus, and Chamber Singers. Community groups include singers from the IUP
Community Music School Children’s Choirs directed by Jessica Zelenack, Indiana
Area High School directed by Scott Salser, Indiana Area Junior High directed by
Ellen Werner, and the Calvary Chancel Choir directed by Joseph Baunoch.
Other IUP groups and performers include the Hoodlebug Brass
faculty quintet, the Legacy Brass student quintet, Hawkapella, and Crimson Chords,
with faculty performances by Mary Logan-Hastings and Oliver Lo.
In assembling the performers and the repertoire, Beeken
explained, “The holiday season reminds us to be thankful and inspires a
celebration of family and community. This first ‘Home for the Holidays’
production strives to reflect upon and remind all that regardless of our race,
religion, or other differences that ultimately, we are all the same. Through
music, diverse members of the Indiana community will come together to celebrate
the season, our community, and our humanity.”
