MILLIGAN UNIVERSITY, Tenn. (March 17, 2022) — The Milligan University Concert Choir and select a cappella ensemble, Heritage, will cap off their biennial spring choir tour with a home concert, titled “How Can I Keep From Singing,” on Sunday, March 20, at 3:30 p.m. in the Mary B. Martin Auditorium located in Seeger Chapel.

Selections include “My God is a Rock,” arranged by Alice Parker and Robert Shaw; “The Lord is My Shepherd,” by Howard Goodall; and “Alleluia” by Elaine Hagenberg. Soloists include seniors Katie Cochran, Dakota Mohler, Kevin Odom and Mareena Rodriguez.  

Heritage also is set to perform “Glory Be,” by Heather Sorenson; “And Can It Be?” arranged by Dan Forrest; and Oscar Galián’s “Salseo.”

“The hard work and talent of these singers will be evident as they perform songs filled with hope and encouragement,” said Dr. Noah Delong, associate professor of music and conductor of the concert choir. “We are excited to share this beautiful music and message with our community.”

This year’s spring tour included stops in Miami, Orlando, Kissimmee and Davenport, Florida.  

In recent years, the choir has maintained an active performance schedule on campus and throughout Northeast Tennessee. Frequently touring throughout the United States, the choir has performed in Washington, D.C., Florida, Chicago and the Midwest.
