Music Dept. to Host Two Concerts

The Covenant College Music Department will be putting on both a chamber orchestra concert and a spring festival concert over the next two weeks, according to press releases on the college’s website.

The chamber orchestra concert, to be held Thursday, April 20, will feature the Covenant College Chamber Orchestra as well as the brass choir, flute ensemble and a harp duo.

Professor Lok Kim, who will direct the chamber orchestra, looks forward to the stylistic diversity of the concert. “Brahms, Tchaikovsky and Dvořák are considered by many to be the best composers from their respective countries,” said Kim via the press release. “The audience will appreciate the differences stylistically, harmonically, and musically in what they see and hear.”

One week later on April 27, the department will hold a spring festival concert that will include Covenant’s Chorale and Chambers Singers, a brass ensemble and a jazz ensemble. Lookout Mountain Presbyterian Church’s Chancel Choir and Lookout Children’s Community Chorus will also perform at the concert.

Associate Professor of Music Scott Finch and alum James Ward ‘72 will lead the spring festival concert together. The theme of the concert is releasing your worries and concerns to God, according to a recent press release announcing the event.

“It comes down to a matter of grateful obedience and living in light of Christ’s death as well as his resurrection to new life,” says Dr. Finch via the press release. “We have been set free not to worry.”

Both concerts are free and open to the public, and will be held at 7:00 pm in the chapel on their respective days.
