University Singers Concert
Monday, 5 p.m., Stratton Hall

Under the direction of Dr. Eli Yanson Jr., the University Singers, BJU’s all-freshman choir, will present its annual fall concert on Monday at 5 p.m. in Stratton Hall.

Audience members can anticipate a varied program of music including a mass movement, spirituals and folk songs. The concert, titled “Southern Harmonies,” features works from South America, South Africa, the southern Philippines and the southern U.S., according to Dr. Yanson.

“Events such as this provide students an opportunity to appreciate and enjoy the art of choral singing, which in my opinion is the highest form of art,” Dr. Yanson said.

One of the aims of Dr. Yanson and his choir is to transport the audience to different parts of the world and, by doing so, give them a taste of different cultures in the world.

Choosing the Right Major Seminar
Tuesday, 5 p.m., Levinson Hall

BJU’s Office of Career Services will hold a seminar on choosing the right major on Tuesday at 5 p.m. in Levinson Hall.

The seminar will feature a panel presentation with a Q&A hosted by a student, a faculty member and a dean to give students timely advice and practical answers to questions about their majors.

“An important part of having a successful college experience is taking a course of study that best fits the student’s interests and abilities as he prepares to follow God’s leading,” said Dr. Steve Buckley of Career Services.

Flute and Woodwind Choir Concert
Wednesday, 5 p.m., Stratton Hall

The Flute and Woodwind Choirs will combine their talents on Wednesday at 5 p.m. in Stratton Hall for a program which both groups have been practicing for since the first week of classes.

“The pieces [the Flute Choir is playing] have never been performed on campus, so I’m looking forward to conducting this new repertoire,” said Mrs. Amanda Barrett, member of the music faculty and director of the Flute Choir.

Mrs. Barrett believes that the woodwind family is the most “colorful” family in the orchestra because of the different ways the instruments’ tones are produced. “This recital gives the listener an opportunity to see and hear the most diverse of the orchestral instrument groups,” she said.
