Sunday, March 27, the Tarleton State University Chamber Choir will perform at Carnegie Hall in New York City in the Collegiate Choral Showcase. They will be accompanied by the Iowa State University Singers, the Southern Chorale of The University of Mississippi and the New Mexico State University Singers. The concert will take place on Easter, March 27. This is Tarleton’s second time at Carnegie Hall, with the Wind Ensemble performing there in 2014.

Dr. Troy Robertson has been the Chamber Choir Director for four years. Seniors Channing Parker and Maria Belknap were a part of his first freshman class at Tarleton. “Being able to see the choir grow and growing with him, has really made us appreciate the gravity of this opportunity, said Belknap.

“Dr. Robertson likes to rate them us a scale of 1-5, said Junior Nathan Mena. “One to four is knowing the technicalities, getting the technique and doing what’s on the paper, but he pushes us to reach 5, which is everything beyond that, connecting with your neighbor, connecting with your audience.  That is us really giving the “gift” of music to their audience.”

In addition to performing at Carnegie Hall, the choir will perform at the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine on Monday, March 28.

Ahead of their Carnegie debut, the choir will offer a concert preview Monday, February 29, the Chamber Choir will perform their pieces for Carnegie Hall. Tickets are $5, or free with a valid Tarleton ID, and will be available at the Fine Arts Center Box Office one hour prior to the concert. All seating is general admission.
