The Centenary College Choir takes its 2015-2016 program, “It’s About Time!,” on the road to south Louisiana Nov. 21-22.
On Saturday, Nov. 21, the choir will perform at 7 p.m. at First United Methodist Church, 2200 Rue Denise, Hammond. The concert is sponsored by FUMC Hammond, FUMC Ponchatoula and Well UMC Ponchatoula.
On Sunday, Nov. 22, performances are set for 8:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. during worship services at University United Methodist Church, 3350 Dalrymple Drive, Baton Rouge.
The Choir’s 2015 theme, It’s About Time!, explores the intersection of time and eternity. Vibrant energetic spirituals, such as “Ain’t Got Time to Die,” “Ask the Watchman” and “In Dat Great Gittin’ Up Mornin’” are counter balanced by majestic classics, such as Ralph Vaughan Williams’ “Lord, Thou Hast Been Our Refuge” and Srul Irving Glick’s stirring symphonic movement, “The Hour Has Come.” Broadway lovers will note the nostalgic “Sunrise, Sunset” from “Fiddler on the Roof,” and big band enthusiasts will love the throwback, “Tico Tico.”
Other highlights include three arrangements of pop music from the King’s Singers, “Blackbird,” “M.L.K.” and You Are the New Day.” The program also features the world premiere of student composer Jaydon Dahlquist’s “A Season for All Things.”
