Choir, Civic Chorale to Perform
Mozart Requiem March 15

8 March 2005 — The Jacksonville State University A Cappella Choir and Calhoun County Civic Chorale will join forces to perform the Mozart Requiem on Tuesday, 15 March at 7:30 p.m. at First United Methodist Church in Anniston. The choirs are under the direction of Dr. Patricia Corbin, JSU's director of choral activities. This concert will be dedicated to Dr. James Fairleigh, retired former JSU Music Department Chair, who passed away suddenly on February 20, 2005.

Three JSU Music Department alumni will perform as soloists in the Mozart Requiem—Teresa Cheatham Stricklin, soprano (Class of ’79); Kenneth Shaw, Bass-Baritone (Class of ’79); and Steve Simmons, Tenor (Class of ’83). Teresa Stricklin is currently a voice professor on the faculty of the JSU David L. Walters Department of Music, Kenneth Shaw is a professor of voice at the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music, and Steve Simmons is enrolled in the graduate voice program at the University of Georgia. Kathryn Hartgrove, mezzo-soprano and voice professor at Georgia State University, completes the solo quartet.

Also featured on the program is Kelly Crotts, new JSU professor of flute in the David L. Walters Department of Music, who will play the “Allegro” movement from the Stamitz Concerto in G Major. The performers will be accompanied by an orchestra of JSU student instrumentalists and string players from the Alabama Symphony.

The concert is free and open to the public. First United Methodist Church is located at 1400 Noble Street in Anniston. For further information, call 782-5544.
