Huntingdon Musicians Present Psalmfest
Montgomery, Ala.—The Huntingdon College Department of Music will present “Psalmfest,” Thursday, April 16, at 7:30 p.m. in Ligon Chapel, Flowers Hall. The performance is free and open to the public.
Describing Psalmfest as a “festival of Psalms,” Gene Davis, chair of the Huntingdon Department of Music, says that musicians from the campus and from other area musical groups are collaborating to bring this performance to the Montgomery community. The Huntingdon Concert Choir, Huntingdon music alumni, faculty, and musicians who have performed with the Montgomery Symphony Orchestra and the Montgomery Chorale are among the performers. Musical periods represented will range from Psalters to the 20th century, with one piece written by Huntingdon Professor of Music Emeritus Dr. Harald Rohlig. Piano, flute, organ, violin, cello, and trumpet are among the instruments that will accompany the voices and carry the messages of the Psalms to the audience. Psalms 9, 11, 22, 23, 27, 100, 103, 117, 121, 134, 148, and 150 will be celebrated in music.
