WALESKA — Two upcoming concerts by students at Reinhardt University will offer music lovers a chance to enjoy a high level of talent.

The concert choir, conducted by Dr. Dennis McIntire, dean of Reinhardt University’s School of Music, will perform in concert on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. in the concert hall of the Falany Performing Arts Center on the Reinhardt campus.

The concert choir is known for its rich and warm tones that evoke a feeling of shared emotion that seems to resonate among secular and religious listeners alike.

For more than 30 years, the concert choir has entertained and inspired audiences throughout the southeastern United States, Carnegie Hall and in several of the great music halls in Russia.

This popular ensemble features more than 60 singers. With a balanced blend of music majors and students studying in other programs, the concert choir comes together to produce a repertoire that ranges from selections from the Renaissance to the best of today’s contemporary anthem and sets the bar for the standard of excellence.

The Reinhardt University Symphonic Winds, under the direction of Dr. David Gregory, will present its final formal concert of the academic year on Thursday at 7:30 p.m. It will also be at the Falany Performing Arts Center in the concert hall.

This ensemble will bring the season to a close by featuring a variety of some of the most famous and widely performed literature of the concert repertoire as well as original band works and transcriptions.

Music of Ottorino Respighi, Richard Wagner, Malcolm Arnold, Antonin Dvorak, Leonard Bernstein, Vaclav Nelhybel, Percy Grainger, and John Philip Sousa will comprise the grand finale concert of this exceptional ensemble.

The 70-member ensemble performs regularly on the Reinhardt campus to full houses and has set a standard of performance excellence for the state of Georgia.

Considered one of the finest ensembles in the region, the Reinhardt University Symphonic Winds brings the 2011-12 concert season to a close with one of its most exciting and demanding performances of the year.

Seating is by reserved seats for both performances and there is an admission charge of $5. For information and tickets, call the Falany Performing Arts Center box office at (770) 720-9167.
