Season Opener, performed at Hemmle Recital Hall, TTU campus

American folk songs have long been a celebrated part of the choral repertoire. Our opening concert will feature folk songs arranged by two of the world’s best-known arrangers: Mack Wilberg and Shawn Kirchner. Written for exciting 8-part choir and 4-hand piano accompaniments, Wilberg’s arrangements are full and bombastic in nature, filling the concert hall with excitement and awe. Kirchner’s contrast considerably in their folksy style with banjo and fiddle-like accompaniments or a cappella settings. Through the arrangements of both individuals, The Lubbock Chorale will highlight Americana through tremendous choral singing, bringing a sense of pride to the Lubbock community.
