GREENVILLE, SOUTH CAROLINA – Emma Landry has been named to Bob Jones University’s University Singers, the University’s largest choral organization.
Landry, a resident of Ashland, is a freshman majoring in child development.
All students at the University are welcome to audition for choirs and are placed in a choral group according to their classification and abilities. Singers are re-auditioned periodically to determine proper placement.
“Freshmen are full of energy and excitement,” said Dr. Pattye Casarow, who serves as conductor of the University Singers. “They love to sing and they work hard to improve their musicianship, and I am honored to work with this talented group of musicians.”
The University Singers will present their first concert on November 13.
The choral program at the University is a developmental program comprised of seven graded choirs. Performances include concerts of standard choral literature, sacred service music, and the annual opera and oratorio performances. Each participant will have the opportunity to learn to use music for the service of God and to reach their individual technical and artistic choral potential within a program that strives for the highest level of musical excellence.
