Below is edited copy from an email I got from the Montgomery Symphony. Note an arranger mentioned is Dr. Rosephanye Powell who teaches at Auburn, and a piece is composed by Dr. Jennifer K. Canfield who teaches at Huntingdon. Flowers Hall is the big building right there in the middle at the main entrance to Huntingdon.

The Huntingdon College Concert Choir and vocal ensembles will present their first full concert of the season Sunday, October 9, at 2:00 p.m. in Ligon Chapel, Flowers Hall on campus at Huntingdon College in Montgomery. The address is 3022 Huntingdon College Drive.

Music will include arrangements by the composers Rosephanye Powell, Paul Manz, John Helgen, Eric Whitacre, Sigmund Spaeth, Val Hicks, John Lennon, and Paul McCartney, as well as a composition by Huntingdon Department of Music associate professor Dr. Jennifer K. Canfield.

The concert is free and open to the public and caps a weekend of activities planned for Homecoming and Family Weekend. The concert will feature performances by the College's B Natural Quartet and new show choir, Huntingdon Harmony.

Huntingdon Harmony was formed in response to popular demand, according to Canfield, who directs the ensemble. The group will perform vocal jazz and show choir music and will incorporate dance movements in performances.
