Show Choir Winter Concert: Motown Sound

JSU Show Choir Encore!

Encore!—the show choir of Jacksonville State University—will present its Winter Concert on Wednesday, November 29, 2006 at 7:30 p.m. in the Performance Center in Mason Hall on the JSU campus.

Under the direction of Dr. Renée L. Baptiste, the ensemble will venture back in time to the Motown Sound or Hitsville, USA. If you remember the songs of Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding, the Four Tops, Kiki Dee, and Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell, then you won’t want to miss this show! The soul flavor of the 60s and 70s will mix with the Hip Hop dance moves of today!

As ambassadors of Jacksonville State University, the members of Encore! perform for local campus and community groups such as the Calhoun County Medical Society, the Calhoun County Youth Leadership, Blue Cross/Blue Shield sponsored tours, Oxford City Arts Council, among others.

Come enjoy the show choirs' rendition of the sounds of the 60s and 70s soul music. There is no admission charge. For further information, contact the JSU Music Department at (256) 782-5873.
