On Sunday, April 30, Wilmington College Chorale had its second concert of the year with a theme of “songs through the ages,” with pieces from many different time periods. The concert began at 7:30, with the first piece, “Keep Your Lamps.”
Gina Beck, Wilmington College’s Chorale Director says, “They are small in number, but mighty in sound!”
This semester the choir has worked extremely hard, meeting three times a week to learn the many different songs that Gina Beck, the chorale’s choir directed, had in store. With all the hard work, many songs were accomplished, some including, “Keep Your Lamps,” “Here Comes the Sun,” “Unwritten,” and “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy.” The choir also learned many spiritual songs to sing at different churches in the surrounding areas. Some of these songs included, “Joshua!” and “Didn’t My Lord Deliver Daniel.”
“I am so proud of how far the members of Chorale have come as a group! Musically they have grown so much, which is so exciting for me, as a director!” – Gina Beck, Director of Chorale
As a group, Chorale has gained strong bonds that have helped strengthen them as musicians, by supporting each other academically, emotionally, and musically. Gina says, “I am so proud of how far the members of Chorale have come as a group! Musically they have grown so much, which is so exciting for me, as a director!” The group has not only grown as musicians, but friends as well.
Lexi, a member of Chorale, says, “Chorale has made my experience on campus amazing and I look forward to every single rehearsal and concert we have!”
Stephani, another member of Chorale, says, “I am lucky to have found a group that is supportive and encouraging. This group is unique and so kind. I couldn’t have found a better group to join my first semester at Wilmington.”
