Clayton State Chorale Singing at CMS National Convention Tomorrow

The Clayton State University Chorale, under the direction of Dr. Shaun Amos, Clayton State director of Choral Activities, will present “PHOS HILARON” by Bruce Neswick, at the CMS (College Music Society) National Convention on Friday, Sept. 26, 2008. The National Conference will be held at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis Hotel, 265 Peachtree Center Ave., Atlanta.

Amos expects a large turn out for the concert, which will be held at Sisters’ Chapel on the campus of Spelman College at 7:30 p.m.

“The piece was written specifically for the Clayton State University Chorale by Bruce Neswick, who is now the Organist/Choirmaster at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City, the largest Gothic Cathedral in the world,” he says. “We are both honored and excited to have been invited as one of the groups to represent collegiate choral music at this years’ convention. The ensemble and I will do our very best to make Clayton State University and the whole region proud!”

Amos points out that the College Music Society is a consortium of college, conservatory, university, and independent musicians and scholars interested in all disciplines of music.

“Its mission is to promote music teaching and learning, musical creativity and expression, research and dialogue, and diversity and interdisciplinary interaction. This year’s convention marks the 50th anniversary of the College Music Society,” he adds.

Atlanta area faculty and students not participating on the conference program can register at a special daily registration rate — $25/day for faculty or $15/day for students. The regular registration fee is $220 for members of CMS and $300 for non-members. The registration form will be available at the conference registration desk in the Marriott Marquis Hotel… anyone who is interested in coming should just check in there.
