SWIC to feature local professors at a chamber music recital 

If you’d like to hear the voices of past and present Southwestern Illinois College Concert Choir members performing together, now’s your chance.

The Choir and alumni will perform Saturday, April 23 at 5 p.m., at the Saint Paul United Church of Christ, 115 W. B St., in Belleville. The event is free and open to the public.

Professor of Music Andy Jensen, DMA, will conduct the performance, with piano accompaniment by Gail Long.

“After a decade teaching at SWIC (and a world-altering pandemic) I’m feeling very nostalgic and reflective,” Jensen said. “This concert is filled with songs our choirs have performed over the past ten years and has brought together over 50 students and alumni for a weekend of friendship and music.”

The concert will include music by composers such as Eric Whitacre, Kim André Arnesen, John Leavitt and Emma Lou Diemer, to name a few.
