A workshop involving three local high schools plus a free evening public concert featuring Penn State’s acclaimed “Hi-Lo’s” highlight a day of choral music Wednesday, March 31 at Penn State Harrisburg.
Students from Lower Dauphin, Central Dauphin, and Hershey high schools will participate in a 10:15 a.m. workshop led by Penn State Associate Professor of Music Christopher Kiver in the Capital Union Building on campus.
A faculty member in the College of Arts and Architecture at University Park, Kiver is the conductor of the Penn State Glee Club from which a select group of 16 singers form the Hi-Lo’s. A native of the United Kingdom, who also directs the University’s Chamber Singers, Kiver has received numerous accolades and awards including a Fulbright and two Grammies in 2006 ("Best Choral Performance" and "Best Classical Album") as a chorusmaster for the critically acclaimed Naxos recording of William Bolcom’s Songs of Innocence and of Experience.
The Hi-Lo’s, known for their energetic and enthusiastic performances, will join the Penn State Harrisburg Capital College Choir under the direction of O. David Deitz for the concert at 7:00 p.m. in the Student Center of the Capital Union Building.
