University Singers to Make Tour Stop in Kinnelon
Popular, classical hits to be performed by singing group.
More than 70 singers will come to the church as the last stop on the tour at 7:30 p.m.
"The University Singers is an advanced concert choir with members from all academic disciplines. The ensemble tours the Northeast each spring and schedules a European tour every four years. At home, the group regularly performs with the university’s Oratorio Society and the Bangor Symphony Orchestra," according to a press release about the group.
The group is led by University Singers conductor Dennis Cox, who has directed the singers for 35 years. Typically, the singers make stops at schools for assemblies and music programs run by UMaine alumni.
“I know from experience that Dr. Cox puts together an excellent program that has something in it for everyone and that will appeal to a variety of community members and students,” Jeremy Milton, director of choral music at Old Saybrook High School in CT, said.
The performers will sing a variety of genres, including popular hits like "Georgia on my Mind, the classical "Holocaust Cantata," and all-time favorite "Maine Stein Song."
