Brevard College Choir

The Brevard College Choir's annual fall concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the Porter Center for Performing Arts on Thursday, Oct. 11. The program focuses on the theme of unity, which is central to Bernstein's "Chichester Psalms."

Composed in 1965 for a choral festival at the Chichester Cathedral in Sussex, England, the "Chichester Psalms" combines verses from several psalms, including the 23rd, all sung in Hebrew. The program will also feature "Five Hebrew Love Songs" by Eric Whitacre, "Ubi Caritas," by Ola Gjeilo, two African folk songs, and a spiritual arrangement by Moses Hogan.
