Students, Faculty and Staff to Perform on Oct. 6

BOILING SPRINGS, N.C.—Gardner-Webb University’s Music Department will present a fall concert, featuring the concert choir, handbell ensemble and chorale, on Tuesday, Oct. 6. The performance, which begins at 8 p.m. inside Dover Theatre on campus, is free and open to the public.

The chorale will be led by Dr. Morgan Soja, assistant professor of music at the University. Students, faculty and staff members will comprise the handbell ensemble, which will be directed by Gardner-Webb alumnus and staff accompanist Matthew Lineberger.

Dr. Paul Etter, professor and chair of the music department, will direct the concert choir. Selections will include an original piece, titled “The Night’s Black Sun,” written by junior music composition major Nathaniel Parks.

“Nathaniel took words his brother wrote and set them to music,” Etter shared. “It is a challenging a cappella piece that he has tweaked over many months. It will be the first time it has been performed on campus, and the choir is excited.”
