Illinois College Choir Tour to perform in Cumberland County

CROSSVILLE — North Central College's 50-voice Concert Choir from Naperville, IL will hit the road March 14-23, as it often does during spring break, to perform and sing in churches and venues throughout Indiana, Tennessee, Georgia and Florida.

The Concert Choir will perform in Pleasant Hill, TN at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 15, in Pleasant Hill Community, United Church of Christ. The concert is free and open to the public. The Community Church is on Church Street off of Main Street across from the Pleasant Hill Elementary School. Having been recently renovated the sanctuary was specially designed to provide excellent acoustics for musical groups such as this.  
Its repertoire includes "Psalm 117" by G. P. Telemann, "Regina Coeli" by W.A. Mozart, "I Waited for the Lord" by Felix Mendelssohn and "The Battle of Jericho" arranged by Moses Hogan, to name a few. Lighter, contemporary fare, such as "Birthdays" by Kirke Mechem and "A Red, Red Rose" arranged by James Mulholland, are also part of the program.  
Selected by audition, members of the 50-voice Concert Choir come from states across the nation and represent most academic disciplines on campus. The Choir is directed by Professor of Music Jeordano Martinez, who also leads North Central's Opera Workshop, teaches courses in music history and literature, and is music director for the musical theatre productions.

Martínez has been recognized on two occasions by the College for distinguished teaching with the Teacher of the Year awards. He's also conductor of the Naperville chorus, a 125-voice community oratorio chorus. Accompanying the touring choir on piano is David Schmitz, associate professor of mathematics at North Central.  
Founded in 1861 and celebrating its Sesquicentennial in 2011-'12, North Central College is an independent, comprehensive college of the liberal arts and sciences that offers more than 55 undergraduate majors and graduate programming in six areas.

Located in the Historic District of Naperville, IL, rated by Money Magazine as among the nation's "Best Places to Live,"North Central College is just 30 minutes from Chicago's loop.  
The Pleasant Hill venue is the second stop on their Choir Tour. They will start on March 14 singing in Goshen, IN; March 15 in Pleasant Hill; continuing during the next week to Indian Rocks Beach, FL; Deerfield Beach FL; Punta Gorda, FL; Valdosta, GA; and ending up at the Scarritt Bennett Center of Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN.

A demanding schedule, but these young people are up to it and enjoy bringing their considerable talent to the South.

For information and directions, please contact the church at (931) 277-3193.
