On Thursday, April 18 and Monday, April 22, the choirs of Southeastern will present their spring concerts entitled I Love the ’90s – Volumes 1 and 2. Both choirs will present music of various ’90s decades, including music from each century from the 1290s to the 1990s.

“There’s a huge variety,” said Dr. Abby Musgrove, Director of Choral Activities at Southeastern. “We’ve got everything from plainchant and madrigals to opera and Backstreet Boys.”

The Southeastern Chorale, the university’s flagship choral ensemble, will present their “Volume 1” concert on Thursday, April 18 in the Fine Arts Recital Hall on SE’s Durant campus. The performance will include compositions by Monteverdi, Mozart, Brahms, Eric Whitacre, and many more. Other highlights include a solo aria performance from SE’s voice instructor, soprano Dr. Stella Yoon, and a close-harmony quintet version of Fields of Gold by 1990’s artist Sting.

A few days later, the SE Choral Union will present their “Volume 2” concert on Monday, April 22 at First Baptist Church, Durant. The 60-voice ensemble will present yet more “90s” music, including compositions by Purcell, Haydn, Puccini, and John Rutter. Both concerts will feature guest student conductors, and enough variety to satisfy any listener.

Whether you prefer lute songs from the 1590s, requiems from the 1790s, opera choruses from the 1890s, or Disney hits of the 1990s, the choirs of Southeastern have something for everyone! Both concerts begin at 7:30 p.m. and are free and open to the public.
