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.
