The William Jewell College Flute and Handbell Choirs will be presenting their fall concert at 3 p.m. November 11 in John Gano Memorial Chapel on the campus in Liberty, Mo. The concert is free, and the public is invited to attend.

The Flute Choir program will begin with a “Concerto for Five Flutes,” written in Paris by the Baroque composer Joseph Bodin de Boismortier. Also featured is the “Flute Quartet No. 1” by Gary Schocker, a flutist/composer from New York. In using the entire spectra of the flute family, including piccolo, concert flute, alto flute and bass flute, the Quartet’s five movements feature contrasting moods from the reflective to the festive. Also on the program is an arrangement of the American Folk song, “Black Is the Color of My True Love’s Hair,” and the Scott Joplin arrangement of “12th Street Rag.” The Flute Choir is conducted by Elaine Brown. The Flute Choir will also perform at the college’s annual Hanging of the Green service at 10:15 a.m. November 28 and at the Lighting of the Quad ceremony at 7 p.m. November 29. Both of those performances are also in Gano Chapel.

The Handbell Choir will perform works by Arnold Sherman and Kevin McChesney, as well as “Prelude on Herzliebster Jesu” by Fred Gramann. “Reverberations,” by Sallie Lloyd, will feature the Choir’s five-octave set of handchimes. Dean Wagner's “Carillon” will be led by student-conductor Anna Norberg-Eskilson, a junior vocal music education major from Lawrence, Kan. Anne Englebrecht, also a student-conductor, will direct an arrangement of “It Is Well With My Soul” by Cathy Moklebust. Engelbrecht is a senior instrumental music education major from Springfield, Mo. The Handbell Choir is conducted by Christie White.

Additional upcoming performances of the Handbell Choir will be at the College Chapel service on November 14 and at the “Hanging of the Green” service on November 28, both at 10:15 a.m. in Gano Chapel. The choir will also perform as part of the prelude music at the “City Come Again” service at Grace and Holy Trinity Cathedral, 13th and Broadway in Kansas City, Mo. The service begins at noon on December 10.

With its challenging academic culture and focus on student achievement, William Jewell College promises students an outstanding liberal arts education that cultivates leadership, service, and spiritual growth within a community inspired by Christian ideals and committed to open, rigorous intellectual pursuits.
