The concert, featuring music by Mozart, Brahms, Palestrina and Gershwin will begin at 3 p.m. Sunday in Brookes Chapel at Shorter College.
Folk songs and spiritual arrangements will also be performed.
The Three Rivers Singers was organized in April 2000. Since that time, the group has performed for Rome’s Fourth of July fireworks celebrations, Memorial Day celebrations, Myrtle Hill dedications, Christmas concerts, lighting of the trees at Northwest Georgia Regional Hospital, Renaissance Marquis residents, spring concerts and more. The chorus is under the direction of Brian Horne, associate professor of music at Shorter. Pam Gaylord Clarkson is the accompanist for the ensemble. Members are from Rome, Summerville, Cedartown and Alabama.
“We just have a lot of fun with each other. And we try to have a good mix of music,” said Horne.
The group’s mission is to provide the community with the opportunity to perform and enjoy quality choral music in a variety of styles. The only requirement to become a member is a desire to sing. No auditions are necessary. The Singers rehearse every Tuesday at 7 p.m. in the chorale room at Shorter (on the second floor of the Minor Fine Arts building).
Admission to the performance, sponsored by the Rome Area Council for the Arts, is free, but donations will be accepted.
