Chamber choir to give free concert Nov. 9

Fresh off opening for Jay Leno Oct. 16, the Marshall University Chamber Choir will be offering a free concert at 3 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 9, in Smith Recital Hall.

Directed by College of Arts and Media Associate Dean Dr. David Castleberry, the performance will include music by Brahms, Vaughan Williams and Victoria, as well as a variety of folk and contemporary selections.

Castleberry said the members of this year’s Chamber Choir were chosen by audition.

“I’m excited about the number and quality of the new singers in this year’s choir,” Castleberry said. “I’m looking forward to many upcoming projects.”

Castleberry said the group has been recognized through recordings and performance tours, including a 2012 tour to France. He said plans are in the works for another international tour, this time a trip to Spain slated for spring 2016.
