PC Singers perform concert

Staff Writer

The Piedmont College Singers held a free concert for Piedmont students, faculty and staff as well as parents and community members on Nov. 12 in the chapel on campus. During the event, a student collapsed on stage. 

The event was packed with fellow students and family members of the singers, as well as various Piedmont staff members, including President James Mellichamp.  

The concert consisted of a total of 11 songs, and some audience members were in tears by the powerful quality of the performance. 

However, during the performance, one of the students performing collapsed. As the group continued to sing at the direction of Associate Dean of Fine Arts and Chair of the Music Department and Professor of Music Wallace Hinson, the student sat slumped on the stage, unable to move his hands. Once the song was completed, the student was helped off stage. 

Still, Sarah Reeves, a freshman psychology major, said that the performance was simply amazing. 

The event concluded with a standing ovation from the audience and applause that filled the entire room.  

The Fine Arts Department still has many events this semester. On Nov. 18 at 7:30 p.m. in the Piedmont College Chapel, the Piedmont Wind Ensemble will perform a concert. Also, on Dec. 5 and 6 at 7:30 p.m. in the Piedmont College Chapel, the Piedmont College Chorale will perform the twenty-sixth annual Service of Lessons and Carols. They will perform under the direction of Lauren Ringwall, and the program will feature readings, carols and anthems to celebrate the Christmas season.
