The Manchester University Music Department will present the annual Homecoming Concert at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 8.

The concert will be in Cordier Auditorium on the North Manchester campus. General admission is free with a suggested donation of $5. Mask and social distancing are required.

It features A Cappella Choir, Chamber Singers and Jazz Ensemble.

A Cappella Choir is the university’s largest mixed choir, with about 40 students. Chamber Singers is a smaller, auditioned group of the A Cappella Choir. Both are under the direction of Professor Debra Lynn, director of vocal studies and department chair. 

The Jazz Ensemble is under the direction of Associate Professor Scott Humphries, director of bands and music education.

The A Cappella Choir will perform standard choral repertoire with the Chamber Singers, focusing on jazz selections. The Jazz Ensemble will feature everything from a Count Basie ballad to modern repertoire to arrangements of classics, such as “In the Mood.” 

The concert will also feature Mason Kniola, a junior vocal performance major, as the student conductor.
