Spring chorus concert a success

Spring chorus concert a success (Milledgeville) – The Georgia Military College spring chorus’ May 27 concert promised to be a night of excitement and entertainment. The group of musicians and their director, Moona Yu, delivered. “I am extremely proud of the junior college chorus,” said Yu. “None of these students major in music. Only a few of them can read music. But who cares? They can sing, and they can bring the audience up to the level where only music can communicate.” The chorus performed a wide variety of musical pieces, starting with “Joyful Alleluia Canon” and “The Wayfaring Stranger,” with a moving solo by Frederick Douglas. “Even though we sang ‘The Wayfaring Stranger,’ which is a kind of depressing and sad song, the energy was there,” said Yu. “I loved it.” The ladies’ ensemble followed with “Put a Little Love in Your Heart,” and the men’s ensemble performed “Viva La Vida.” “Bridge Over Troubled Water” was highlighted by a solo from Joshua Cotton, and Walter Reynolds, John Nuttall, and Gregory May brought Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “A Concert Celebration” to life. The show closed with the GMC alma mater and “God Bless America.” “Overall, I was very pleased,” said Yu. “The audience felt and experienced what we were trying to present on the stage. Through the performance, I have experienced that music still works today.” ------ Ross Couch Media Relations Georgia Military College (478) 387-4714 GMC ext: 24714 rcouch@gmc.cc.ga.us
