The Concert Choir is accompanied by Deborah McClung-Guillory, assistant professor of music at ULM.
The University Chorale of fifty-two voices will sing two pieces from the Alice in Wonderland Series, "Father William" and "The Lobster Quadrille", a spiritual "Hush, Somebody's Calling my Name," and the finale of "The Gondoliers" opera ("Dance a Cachucha"). This choir is accompanied by Rhonda Weyhrich.
