Webster Chamber Singers Dazzle in Baton Rouge National Collegiate Choir Organization
November 06, 2017
Webster University Chamber Singers performed to rave reviews on Friday, Nov. 3, at the biennial gathering of the National Collegiate Choral Organization (NCCO) in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
The Chamber Singers ensemble was one of 10 collegiate choirs selected through a blind
peer review to perform at the biennial conference. The 30-minute performance mixed
cultures, languages, and pushed the boundaries of musical styles often associated
with collegiate chamber choirs.
"This was a momentous concert...certainly the largest and most important stage on which members of the Webster choral community have performed, and a testament to the work the Dr. Trent Patterson has accomplished in his just-over-seven years on the faculty," said Department of Music chair Jeffrey Carter.
At the culmination of the performance, Webster's Chamber Singers received a standing ovation that lasted until the very last member of the choir left the stage--a testiment to a job well done.
