George Fox University’s Department of Music held its annual Spring Chamber Concert this past week, giving the community a glimpse into some of the smaller, potentially lesser known, ensembles present on campus.
Deemed as an open event, the Spring Chamber concert serves as an outlet for student participants of ensembles to share their musical talents with the rest of the student body and surrounding community, free of charge.
Hosted in Bauman Auditorium, this year’s production featured performances by the Keyboard Ensemble, Women’s Chorale, the String Ensemble, the hand bell ringers and the Chamber singers performing many traditional, well-known pieces such as Alleluia, Bells of Notre Dame, and Under the Sea, among others.
“Having one chamber concert gives students not familiar with the music program at Fox a chance to see the wide range of ensembles one can be a part of here,” says sophomore and string ensemble member Issac Pauley.
“My favorite part of the event was being able to perform something we have spent a lot of time on, “ says sophomore and member of the handbell ringers, Emily Deering. “Handbells are very unique. It was a good chance for students to be exposed to something different,” she continued.
“All of these ensembles, with exception of the Chamber Choir and the String Quartet, do not require an audition, and are easily available for anyone who misses performing in an ensemble,” Deering said.
