As the school year begins to come to a close, Mercer’s choirs are set to hold two of their last performances of the semester.

One of the performances, “Voices of Spring,” will take place Sunday, April 17. The Mercer Women’s Chamber Choir will be featured in Fickling Hall with Stanley Roberts conducting. Roberts serves as an associate dean in the Townsend School of Music and is the Arthur Lowndes Rich Professor of Choral Conducting at Mercer.

The event is free to the public. It will take place from 3:00 to 4:30 p.m.

Shortly after the Sunday afternoon performance, the Choral Society of Middle Georgia, Mercer Singers and the Mercer University Choir will unite to perform Maurice Duruflé’s “Requiem” at the Mulberry Street United Methodist Church.

Roberts will conduct this concert as well. He will be aided by Mercer University organist Jack Mitchener to bring together a version of the piece, which has been “highly celebrated for its sheer beauty of texture and color” in the past. Mitchener is the director of the Townsend-McAfee Institute of Church Music and associate professor of organ in the Townsend School of Music.

This event will take place from 4:00 to 6:30 p.m. Tickets will be sold for $10.

Roberts was unavailable for comment at the time of publication.
