MOUNT VERNON—Brewton-Parker College’s Division of Music has experienced and exciting fall semester full of new beginnings. With two new instructors, Dr. Sonja Sepulveda and Dr. Kandie Smith, joining the faculty this fall semester, many were excited to see the new repertoire Brewton-Parker’s musical ensembles would present this year.


Three of BPC’s music ensembles, the Concert Choir, Baron Ringers and BPC’s Jazz Voices, cooperatively presented a fall concert Thursday, Nov. 6 in Gilder Recital Hall. The Concert Choir, which performs mostly choral music and is under the direction of Dr. Sepulveda, offered a diverse selection of pieces ranging from an audience-involvement piece entitled “Dravidian Dithyramb” that employs sounds of the jungle, to the great spiritual workings of Moses Hogan with a piece entitled “God’s Gonna Set this World on Fire.”


The Brewton-Parker hand bell ensemble, known more commonly as the “Baron Ringers” and led by Dr. Ben Caston, performed several pieces such as “Didn’t My Lord Deliver Daniel” and a favorite hymn, ‘What a Friend We Have in Jesus.” These pieces were arranged by Dan R. Edwards and Arnold B. Sherman, respectively.


The Music Division also introduced a new ensemble during this program. The BPC Jazz Voices, led by Dr. Sepulveda, entertained the audience with popular tunes such as “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” arranged by Deke Sharon, and “Hide and Seek” composed by Imogen Heap.


These three ensembles combined to present a very enjoyable and musically diverse concert. Look for other Division of Music events coming soon. The Music Division will host the annual “Trejeito Christmas Celebration” at the Pal Theatre in Vidalia on Friday, Dec. 5. The Celebration will begin at 6:30 p.m., followed by a second showing at 8 p.m. Admission is free.


Brewton-Parker College is the only accredited four-year Christian college in south Georgia.
