The University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff Vesper Choir will present their spring 2017 concert May 5 at 6:00 pm in the J.M. Ross Theater of the Hathaway-Howard Fine Arts Building. The free, public event will feature music by composers such as Heinrich Schutz, Francis Poulenc, Norman Dello Joio, Moses Hogan, William Dawson, Josephine Poelinitz, Bishop T.D. Jakes and others.
The 2016-2017 academic year marks the 70th anniversary of the founding of the Vesper Choir by Professor Ariel “Pops” Lovelace. Members of the Vesper Choir and staff recently returned from a performance/educational tour to Spain where they performed concerts in Madrid, at El Escorial and in Toledo. During the concert, graduating seniors will be recognized and tribute will be paid to the contributions of Professors Lovelace and McGee.
