BUIES CREEK – The Campbell University Choir will perform its spring 2012 program at 8 p.m. Thursday the Fine Arts Building’s Scott Concert Hall.

Admission is free and open to the public.

The program will consist of music both sacred and secular, with Elizabeth Oldham as accompanist and Phillip Morrow as conductor.

Featured composers will include Joseph Haydn, Rene Clausen, Rollo Dilworth, Sarah Hopkins and Jeffrey Ames.

The Campbell Voices, an 18-member chamber ensemble drawn from members of the University Choir, will also perform.

The Campbell University Choir is the principal vocal ensemble of the Music Department in the College of Arts and Sciences. In addition to students who major or minor in music, choir personnel includes students from a variety of academic majors, all sharing equally in the music-making process.

The Choir has a rich heritage spanning more than 55 years and has performed for audiences all over North Carolina and beyond. Recent tours have taken the choir to Maryland, New York, Connecticut, Missouri, the Outer Banks of North Carolina, Virginia and Maryland and outside the U.S. in England, Italy and, last March, Ireland.

Morrow has been part of the music faculty at Campbell for 13 years, teaching in the areas of conducting voice, and church music. Oldham, a Campbell alumna, is the choir accompanist and also serves as part-time staff accompanist in the Vocal and Instrumental programs of the music department.
