Several students and I went to Shock City Studio in Saint Louis last week, and recorded a vocals version of the Webster University fight song.
Michael Hillstrom’s (BM ’94) “Go, Go, Gorloks” has now been recorded by the Webster University Wind Ensemble, and with student voices. The circle is complete.
Two concerts in four days . . . . We are busy indeed!
The Wind Ensemble debuts Monday evening under the direction of Dr. Paul Davis, in his first performance with this group.
And our three choral ensembles delivered their first concert of the new school year on Friday evening. Dr. Stuart Chapman Hill debuted with the Women’s Chorus, and Dr. Trent Patterson led Chamber Singers and Concert Choir.
One of our alums attended with his girlfriend, who wrote on Facebook: “We both left in awe of how amazing the choirs sounded. The Chamber Singers produced a sound that was unbelievable and at one point had me asking myself, ‘is this really human voices creating this sound?’ The Chamber Singers even performed a piece composed by one of their own members, which was magnificent and so incredibly beautiful.”
The Webster University choral program has developed a YouTube channel with two dozen performances spanning the last five years.
