– THE 5TH ANNUAL SEASONAL CHORAL FLOURISH

A Seasonal Choral Flourish will be the 5th presentation of this annual concert, traditionally held at St. Peter the Apostle Catholic Church. This year, it will be held on Friday, December 5th at 7:30pm. Selections will feature the Concert Chorale, Jazz Unlimited, and the Chamber Singers. The Concert Chorale is the largest choral, performing ensemble on campus. This lightly auditioned choir is made up of both majors and non-majors that demonstrate a love for choral music and have a willingness to strive for continued improvement of choral techniques and vocal skills. Their repertoire ranges from classical works to gospel and contemporary. Jazz Unlimited is a vocal jazz ensemble that concentrates on the intricacies of jazz music. The Chamber Singers is a supreme ensemble chosen for their musicality and purity of vocal quality. These vocally mature, select singers perform extensively throughout the four-state area demonstrating a refined sensitivity of the blending of music and text. All choral groups will perform under the direction of Dr. David Sharlow.

Special guests include Dr. Jeffrey Macomber and the Southern Symphony Orchestra. The Southern Symphony Orchestra is Joplin’s college/community orchestra hosted by MSSU. All photos included above are from last year’s Seasonal Choral Flourish and courtesy of Curtis Almeter.
