Come listen to great voices at Brigham Young University-Idaho's Harvest Choirfest Oct. 15. Performances are at 6 and 8:30 p.m. The showcase includes BYU-Idaho's four auditioned choirs: Men's Choir, Women's Choir, Vocal Union, and Collegiate Singers.
Each choir has its own unique theme to their selection of songs, which focuses on gratitude, nature, God, people and culture.
"There should be something for everyone to enjoy, and the concert gives audiences an opportunity to sample several campus choirs in one evening," said Randall Kempton, director of Choral Activities.
Selections include traditional choral favorites, hymn arrangements, spirituals and two pieces by popular choral composer Eric Whitacre, including "Lux Aurumque" and the BYU-Idaho premiere of "Animal Crackers-Vol.2." The choirs are directed by Eda Ashby (Women's Choir), Nori Brower, (Vocal Union), Randall Kempton, (Collegiate Singers) and Kevin Brower (Men's Choir).
Tickets are $6 for the public and $3 for students. Event dress is required.
