MILLIGAN COLLEGE, TN-The Milligan College Music Department presents the Milligan Singers and the Milligan Handbell Choir in concert on Tuesday, Dec. 4, at 7:30 p.m. in Seeger Chapel on the Milligan College campus.
The Milligan Singers, an auditioned women’s choir, is directed by Carlene B. Eastridge, assistant professor of music, and accompanied by Christy Lewis, a junior music major from Piney Flats, Tenn. The evening will feature works from a variety of styles and periods, including classical, spirituals and light contemporary. The choir of 22 singers represents students from a variety of academic studies, including music, business, education, theatre and biology.
Milligan Handbell Choir, directed by Professor David Runner, performs at college and outside functions throughout the year.
