Dylan Moore, Ottawa, is a member of the SC Singers, a group that presented a concert Thursday in Messenger Recital Hall in the Darbeth Fine Arts Center.
The concert featured excerpts from J. S. Bach’s “Magnificat” and “Cantata No. 10.” These two works are both settings of the “Song of Mary” from Luke Chapt. 1, and featured student soloists. Daniel Stevens and Stephen Butler collaborated on violin and piano.
The concert also featured some lighter songs, including an arrangement of Vince Guaraldi’s “Christmas Time is Here,” from the beloved holiday classic, “A Charlie Brown Christmas.”
“The vocal works of J.S. Bach are some of the most difficult in the repertoire, and I’m very proud of our students who are able perform it so well,” David Gardner, SC director of choirs, said. “The audience is in for an enjoyable evening.”
