Together again on Milligan’s campus, Men in Song and Women in Song will combine for a one-day choral festival open to singers of any age from high school through adult. Dr. Rosephanye Powell from Auburn University will be the guest conductor of the women’s festival choir. The men’s festival choir will be led by Dr. Noah DeLong of Milligan and Dr. Alan Stevens of ETSU. Participants will have the opportunity to fellowship with other singers, build confidence in their vocal abilities, and learn new music to perform in a public concert that concludes the festival. The finale concert, which is free and open to the public, also will include performances by Milligan and ETSU vocal ensembles, as well as other featured choirs from throughout the Tri-Cities region. This festival is jointly sponsored by Milligan and ETSU and is partially funded by a grant from the Tennessee Arts Commission. More information and registration can be found at www.etsu.edu/cas/music/camps/ or milligan.edu/arts.
Brianna Thomas started turning heads with her precocious vocal abilities in her hometown of Peoria, Illinois while still in grade school. She had toured Europe before reaching her teens, and has since established a reputation as one of the most formidable singers in jazz. The New York Times declared that “Ms. Thomas has a strong voice and a big range, descended from Sarah Vaughan and Betty Carter and routed through Dianne Reeves, with clarity and confidence and a little dirt.” Her debut appearance with the KJO is sure to be the perfect Valentine’s treat for your special someone.
