PC male choir part of vocal selections featured at annual Garden Song celebration

 

The Presbyterian College Choir will present its spring concert Thursday, April 11 at 7:30 p.m. in Edmunds Hall. Along with the PC Choir, the women's ensemble, Bella Voce, and the men's ensemble, Cantare!, will perform.

This year's concert will present a collection of lighter works. This final choral concert of the spring semester is free and open to the public.

The PC Choir will sing John Rutter’s “The Reluctant Dragon.”

It is the story of the patron saint of England, St. George, and his struggle with the mythical dragon. In this drama, the dragon turns out to be a peaceful poet who simply wants to share his verses with friends. The struggle between the village folk who want to kill the dragon and St. George's realization that the dragon is a nice guy is a story of acceptance and inclusion in spite of different lifestyles and viewpoints.

The dramatization of this work is entertaining for all ages.

Bella Voce and Cantare! will present folk songs and pieces from American popular repertoire to add the less formal atmosphere of this year’s spring concert.

Dr. Ron Davis, Ms. Lucie Svatanova-Hughes and Dr. Christian Elser will conduct the ensembles accompanied by Ms. Sharalynn Hicks.
