Vocal music ensembles to perform at CWC
Mar 3, 2013 - From staff reports
Two all-male vocal music ensembles from the University of Wyoming will present a concert at 3 p.m. Sunday, March 10, at the Robert A. Peck Arts Center Theater at Central Wyoming College, 2660 Peck Ave., Riverton.
The UW Singing Statesmen and The Happy Jacks have been building a reputation in the region.
The Singing Statesmen is the newest performing organization at UW, and it performs standard male chorus repertoire. The Statesmen have invited area high school singers and alumni to join in for three pieces.
The Happy Jacks is an a cappella ensemble whose members have been selected from the larger University of Wyoming men's choir and the Singing Statesmen. The Happy Jacks perform a wide range of hits that includes classics from the '60s, more contemporary chart-toppers, and original compositions.
The event is sponsored by Arts in Action and the CWC Music Department.
Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students. Ticket sales offset touring costs for the ensembles.
