CANYON, Texas — Three West Texas A&M University ensembles will praise harmony—in multiple senses of the word—in the fall choir concert Oct. 13.

WT’s Collegiate Choir, Chamber Singer and Chorale each will perform beginning at 8 p.m. Oct. 13 in Mary Moody Northen Recital Hall. Admission is free.

“The program will include a variety of literature, all centered around the idea of celebrating the human spirit and unity,” said Dr. Sean Pullen, associate professor of music and director of choral activities. “Folk songs from around the world, music from Western and Eastern cultures and American popular songs all will be represented.”

Among songs to be performed are “Shenandoah,” “Daniel, Daniel, Servant of the Lord,” “I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing,” “Can’t Help Falling in Love,” “Walking in Memphis” and more.

Student directors Brady Fellers, junior music education major from Amarillo, and Conner Nall, senior music education major from Canyon, will join Pullen on the conductor’s podium.

Fostering an appreciation of the arts is a key component of the University’s long-range plan, WT 125: From the Panhandle to the World.

That plan is fueled by the historic, $125 million One West comprehensive fundraising campaign. To date, the five-year campaign — which publicly launched in September 2021 — has raised more than $110 million.
