Three hundred years of music in two hours

Posted on: April 24, 2013

From uplifting choral music to Broadway showstoppers, College of the Mainland Vocal Arts will highlight the evolution of music during the past three centuries with its performance “From Mozart to the Modern Age: A Presidential Celebration of Music.” The concert will be held April 26 at 7:30 p.m. at St. John’s United Methodist Church in Texas City.

“We have programmed a concert that will appeal to any musical taste, and the choirs and soloists sound simply fantastic. We are anticipating a simply brilliant show,” said Director of Vocal Arts, Dr. James Heffel.

The show’s repertoire will include works from the height of the classical period to modern selections such as a musical panorama from the Broadway show “Cats.”   

A celebration in honor of COM’s new president, the concert will feature student soloists and ensemble groups.

“We want to honor our new president, Dr. Beth Lewis, with a fun and enjoyable evening of a variety of musical styles,” said Heffel.  

In addition, a reception will be held in the church commons immediately after the performance, which is free and open to the public. For further information, please call 409-933-8348.
