Concert Choir To Present 'Hymn Sing' Concert

On Sept. 28, North Greenville University’s Cline School of Music will showcase its Concert Choir at First Presbyterian Church in downtown Greenville. The concert will feature great hymns of the Christian faith.

The evening of music will feature the choirs and orchestras of both North Greenville University and First Presbyterian Church.

In the fall of 2017, NGU began a tradition of collaborating with First Presbyterian when they joined together to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. The concert was performed by over 150 musicians celebrating the Five Solas of the Reformation: Scripture alone, faith alone, grace alone, Christ alone, and to the glory of God alone.

The director, Dr. Seth Killen, is looking forward to another opportunity to glorify God through music alongside First Presbyterian.

“It is a great experience for our students to collaborate with excellent church musicians, and to perform great sacred music in such a historic and beautiful space,” said Killen.

According to Killen, this concert will feature approximately 170 musicians.

“The concert begins with Sterling Procter’s rousing arrangement of ‘Come Christians, Join to Sing,’ which features brass fanfare and pipe organ,” said Killen. “There will be several modern hymn arrangements performed alone by the choir and orchestra, but most of the pieces include congregational singing.”

NGU’s concert choir is made up of undergraduate students who have a passion for singing music in the choral tradition. The audition-only ensemble is open to students of all majors. View more upcoming choir concerts.

Join us at 7 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 28 at First Presbyterian Church, 200 West Washington Street, Greenville, SC.
