Monmouth College’s Concert Band and Concert Choir will join forces to present a spring concert on April 27 at 7:30 p.m. in the Kasch Performance Hall of the college’s Dahl Chapel and Auditorium.

The 60-piece Concert Band performs under the direction of Stephen Richter, director of instrumental activities. It is open to all students of the college without an audition. The band will feature trumpet soloist Michael Carioto, a sophomore from Worth, performing “I Dreamed a Dream” from “Les Miserables,” and student conductor Larry Lipinski, a freshman from Manhattan, leading the band in “Three Japanese Dances.” The Concert Band will conclude with a performance of Clare Grundman’s “The Blue and the Gray.”

There are also 60 members in the Concert Choir, another non-auditioned group that is directed by assistant professor of music Tim Pahel.

The Concert Choir will perform a program of folk songs and spirituals from the U.S. and around the world. Included will be folk songs from Israel, Korea, Scotland and Zimbabwe, and a classical selection from Austria.
