LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – Performances by EOU’s choral groups and Percussion Ensemble are planned for this Thursday and Friday, May 31 and June 1.

The concerts begin at 7:30 each evening in McKenzie Theatre in Loso Hall and are free and open to the public. Donations will be accepted at the door to benefit the music department.

Thursday’s end-of-year Spring Choral Concert will feature the 43-voice Chamber Choir under the direction of Peter Wordelman, professor of music, and the 26-voice Women’s Choir, directed by Michael Frasier and accompanied by Mio Aoike, both instructors of music.

Highlighting the Chamber Choir portion of the program will be small group performances of seven short popular a cappella pieces arranged by students Holly Sorensen, Mike Kellison, Jon Davidson, Erin Rufener, Luke Basile, Debbie Brown and Joshua Peters.

The Women’s Choir will present pieces from their recently completed eastern Oregon tour. The concert concludes with a stirring presentation of selections from the recent EOU musical production of “Titanic.”

On Friday, the Percussion Ensemble will be joined by the EOU Drum Line and Michael Kellison on bass guitar. Teun Fetz, associate professor of music, is the director.
