The Soul Speaks
Choir gives concert of spirituals and gospel music
The York College Concert Choir performed their annual Spring Works Concert, “The Soul Speaks: An Evening of Spirituals and Gospel Music,” to a nearly packed auditorium at the First Presbyterian Church on Monday evening.
The concert selections included accompanied and acapella pieces by well-known composers such as Moses Hogan and Rene Clausen. Conductor Dr. Clark Roush, professor of music and endowed chair for the performing arts, says the students loved rehearsing this spring’s material.
Soloists for the concert were York College faculty members Dr. Adrienne Dickson and Amy Fraser, as well as York College alumna Sue Roush and several current students. Kay Magner provided the evening's piano accompaniment.
