HPU Concert Choir to perform on tour

BROWNWOOD – January 20, 2017 – Howard Payne University’s Concert Choir will tour select schools and churches in Texas and Arkansas near the end of January. The choir will travel Friday, January 27, through Tuesday, January 31.

The concert tour is titled “Creator Created Creating: My Maker’s Bounding Line.” A variety of musical selections will be presented including works from Joseph Haydn’s “The Creation” which depict the days of creation. During each concert, many allegorical references will be made to Yahweh’s presence through light, water, trees, mankind and the vastness of the firmament, all of which speak to the unfathomable omnipotence of our Creator.

“We are excited for this year’s tour,” said Dr. Christopher Rosborough, assistant professor of music and director of choral activities. “We look forward to sharing what HPU has to offer, connecting with alumni and friends and sharing music in honor of God’s creation. We hope to be a blessing to each audience we visit.”

This year’s Concert Choir tour will take the group to Robert E. Lee High School in Tyler, Marshall High School in Marshall, Meadows Baptist Church in Plano, Travis Academy of Fine Arts in Fort Worth and Granbury High School in Granbury. The group will also have the opportunity to travel to Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in Little Rock, Arkansas, and Woodland Heights Baptist Church in Conway, Arkansas. The choir will finish the tour with concerts at Brownwood High School and Early High School.
