Wesley College music students were featured on February 28 at Bennett Chapel during the Vocal Music Showcase. The Wesley College Choir sang several songs and a few select opera scenes were performed during the event.
The operas included scenes from Mozart’s “The Magic Flute,” “The Marriage of Figaro,” and Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “South Pacific.” Four voice students of Professor Valerie Bernardt including Alana Walker, Elizabeth Hazlett, Emily Bentz and Sara Miller performed the various scenes.
The College Choir, directed by Wesley Associate Professor of Music Dr. James Wilson, opened with a traditional canon that was followed by arrangements of “The Water is Wide,” “Hush, Somebody’s Callin’ My Name” and “You Are the New Day.”
“The mid-semester showcases give us a chance to feature the students’ work during the first half of the semester,” said Dr. Wilson. “I am proud of their accomplishments after just six weeks of rehearsal.”
The choir singers include Tiffany Allen-James, Eukeria Asamoah, Bentz, Sullivan Lynch, Hazlett, Miller, Brandon Morgan, Haylee Olley, Francis Quartey, Jacob Sasso, Walker and Natalie Williams.
