The WCU Concert Choir will join voices in the annual fall choral concert.

The Western Carolina University School of Music will present its annual fall choral concert Thursday, Oct. 26, in the John W. Bardo Fine and Performing Arts Center.

The free concert begins at 7:30 p.m. and will feature music that explores the meaning of home. Songs will include a shape-note hymn familiar to the Great Smoky Mountains region, an a cappella arrangement of a Dolly Parton ballad and a special Cherokee-themed collaboration.

Performing will be the WCU Concert Choir, an auditioned choir of 28 students, and the University Chorus, a large choir of 100 singers. The choirs will be joined by Cherokee performers Matthew Tooni, flute, and John Toineeta, storyteller.
