The Brewton-Parker College Choral Society
presented “King David” this past Sunday, April 30 in Saliba
Chapel on Brewton-Parker’s main campus. “King David” is
a symphonic psalm written by Arthur Honegger, and adapted from a play
by Rene Morax. It portrays the story of the life of David from his boyhood
as a shepherd to his reign as King of Israel. The Choral Society was
accompanied by a 37-piece orchestra and featured solo performances by
Brewton-Parker music faculty members Dr. Ben Caston and Stephanie Fort.
Maya Hoover, assistant professor of voice at Clayton State University,
was also a featured soloist in the performance. Barbara Dean of Eastman
was cast as The Witch of Endor and John Dyal of Cobbtown was the narrator.
