FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Members of the WCJC Choir and the Wharton Community Choir rehearse for their upcoming Fall Choir Concert, sheduled for 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 25.
WHARTON, TEXAS – The Wharton County Junior College Choir will have plenty of community support at its first concert of the Fall 2022 season. The choir will team up with the Wharton Community Choir, a local organization of singers and musicians, for a concert featuring classics of choral literature.
“This uplifting concert celebrates the joy of shared musical experiences,” said WCJC Choir Director Dr. Karl Paoletti.
The Fall Choir Concert is scheduled for 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 25, at the Horton Foote Theater in the Duson-Hansen Fine Arts Building on the Wharton campus. The event is free and open to the public.
Selections will include “Fly Me to the Moon,” “Blue Skies,” the spiritual “Ride the Chariot” and “Light the Hallway” by well-known vocal group Pentatonix. Paoletti said his choir students are excited to share the stage with the Wharton Community Choir’s veteran performers.
“It’s always fun to sing vocal jazz standards,” he said. “These songs are difficult to sing because of the close harmonies and complex rhythms. I have a wonderful group of talented students who are able to rise to the challenge of performing these masterworks of jazz.”
