Chorale Spring Concerts

Chorale Spring Concerts

Join the Arizona Christian University community in attending these spring music events this weekend. The Chorale Spring Concerts will feature the Arizona Christian University Chorale as well as student and faculty soloists. Also this weekend, graduating music student Matthew Taylor will perform his senior recital, featuring ACU’s The Pursuit band. The first part of the Chorale Spring Concerts will highlight the ACU Music Department’s studios and faculty soloists. Students from the Vocal Studios of Professors Kelsey Gross and Tracy Peterson will perform solo pieces. Professor Gross (May 1st concert) and Professor Peterson (May 4th concert) will also perform solos. The instrumental studios will be highlighted by senior student Natalie McIntyre playing the piano, and by our multitalented composer, conductor, and violinist, Professor Libbie Kent, who will play the violin. The second portion of the concert will feature the ACU Chorale and will consist of pieces connected by the theme “Meditations on the Beautiful Savior, the Book of Psalms, and the Book of Song of Songs.” The ACU Chorale will perform pieces in several languages, including German and Hebrew. Repertoire will include arrangements of traditional Christian hymns. The ACU Chorale is directed by Dr. Hoffmann Urquiza Pereira, Chair of the Music Department, and accompanied by Professor Shara Engel. “These concerts represent the culmination of the ACU Chorale technical development during this academic year. It is also a great opportunity for the Music Department faculty and students to share the integration of experiences the department offers as these students prepare for careers in ministry, teaching, and performance,” says Dr. Pereira.

Provost’s Pen – Semester End

Provost’s Pen – Semester End

The end of the semester can’t come too soon.  At this point we are all out of gas so to speak.  Once finals are over, we all transition rather quickly to the next thing.  Whether it’s a vacation, summer school, job or some combination of the three, we get our eyes focused on the future.  Before that happens I would encourage you to pause for a time to reflect.  Reflection is one of the keys to making much needed changes in our lives.  If we don’t reflect, we risk missing out on opportunities to grow and change.  We find ourselves doing the same things but expecting different results. One of the most practical ways to reflect is to use your calendar to evaluate how you use your time.  Select any week from the spring semester.  If you haven’t already done so, fill out the hours on the calendar as much as possible with details on how you spent your time. Technology makes it easy to color code your calendar entries.  For example, shade class times in red, work schedule in blue and worship services in yellow and so on. Doing this activity allows you to do a quick visual analysis of how balanced your life is.  Of course there are fixed appointments like classes, work and church but there is a lot of discretionary time in your week as well.  Did you use your time wisely?  How were your priorities reflected in the way you used your time?  Thinking through this data gives you the opportunity to make better choices for the future. One more personal assessment should be...
