“Joys, Fears and Emotions” Concert


Spring 2008

“Joys, Fears and Emotions”

The Galveston College Choir and the Island Steel Drum Band, both conducted by Eric D. Sharp, are presenting a musical evening of music representing joys, fears and other emotions.  The concert will include a powerful setting of the “Last Words of David” by Randall Thompson, a lush setting of the “Old Irish Blessing” by Denes Agay, a rhythmic piece “O Sacred Banquet” by Eric D. Sharp and a French piece “Dirait-on” by Morten Lauridsen.  There will also be a premiere of “The Coming Fire” by Adam C. Sharp which incorporates apocalyptic Latin texts to create a cinematic type piece for choir.  There will also be other surprises with solo and small vocal ensembles by music students.

 Please join us at the concert on Friday, May 2, 2008 at 7:30pm in the performing arts room (FA-207) at Galveston College. The concert is free.  For more information or questions about the music department contact Eric D. Sharp at (409) 944-1258 or at esharp@gc.edu.
