Harding University Chorus to take stage Spring Sing weekend

SEARCY, Ark.-The Harding University Chorus will perform their annual
spring concert April 11 at 11:00 a.m. in the Administration
Auditorium, in conjunction with Spring Sing weekend.

Under the direction of Dr. Cliff Ganus, the concert will feature a
handful of choral works composed by Dr. William Holloway, former
professor of music and chair of the department. Other selections will
vary widely, including spirituals, Gilbert and Sullivan, South Indian
music, and Irish folksongs.

For the past seven years, the chorus has been performing a Spring Sing
concert for visitors, relatives, alumni and prospective students on
campus for the weekend activities.

The chorus travels each school year and has performed in 43 states and
32 foreign countries. In 2006 the group was awarded the Grand Prix at
the Mundus Cantat International Choral Festival in Sopot, Poland,
competing against 14 other choirs from 10 countries. They also sing
annually with the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra.

Saturday’s concert is free of charge and open to the public.

university in Arkansas and attracts more National Merit Scholars than
