The Casper College Chamber Singers, Collegiate Chorale, and Contemporary Singers will perform their first concert of the 2024 spring semester on Tuesday, March 5, at 7 p.m. titled “Seasons of Life.”

“Seasons of Life” is under the direction of Zachary Vreeman, DMA, choral instructor, and Paula Flynn, collaborative pianist. “We invite everyone to come enjoy a concert presented by all of the Casper College choirs that reflects on the many seasons that we experience in life: times of love and loss, youth and age, peace and hard times, and newness and nostalgia,” said Vreeman.

The concert will begin with the CC Collegiate Chorale performing music from Joshua Rist, Gerald Finzi, René Clausen, and Stephen Paulus. Members of the chorale include sopranos Katie Baumstarck, Danica Boyce, Ali Caldwell, Bella Garro, Eun Seon Kim, Meghan Murray, and Lila Olson; altos Madison Billings, Samantha Boutte, Joan Davies, Savannah Kiggans, Rachael Payne, Karen Sandoval, Lindsey Scott, and Natasha Wyse; tenors Collin Jones, Kevin Kaske, and Joshua Simon; and basses Roman Gaddis, Owen LaCount, and Cetan Wise.

The CC Contemporary Singers will perform such pieces as “I’ll Be Seeing You” and “Give Me The Simple Life.” Members of the Contemporary Singers include Boyce, Caroline Weiss, Billings, Baumstarck, Kaske, Jeremy Rich, Cole Cooper, and LaCount.

The CC Chamber Singers will perform works from Jacob Narverud, Richard Nance, Randall Thompson, and Melissa Dunphy, among others. Members of the Chamber Singers include sopranos Baumstarck, Boyce, Caldwell, Kim, and Weiss; altos Billings, Grace McPherson, Scott, and Mala Stagg; tenors James Chappelow, Kaske, Rich, and Simon; and basses Cooper, Mark Heward, Jones, Joshua Knutson, and LaCount.

The concert will be capped off with a performance of Aaron Copland’s “The Promise of Living” by all three choirs and will feature both Flynn and Kim on piano.

The concert is free to the public. Wheeler Concert Hall is located in the Music Building on the Casper College campus.
