Art a La Carte- Kansas Wesleyan Chorale

Ken Hakoda and the Kansas Wesleyan Chorale will perform Friday, October 9 at 12:20 p.m. in the fifth installment of the 2015 Fall Art a la Carte concert series. The Wesleyan Chorale is a chamber vocal ensemble consisting of 23 students from Kansas Wesleyan University who are selected by audition each fall. The group performs a variety of genres from classical selections to gospel and popular tunes at a variety of venues on and off-campus throughout the academic year.
The Chorale will present a program entitled “Fly,” which consists of music that lifts the human soul to a different dimension of life. The program will include a techno-choral tune, “Fly me to Paradise” by Eric Whitacre, as well as a powerful gospel “My Soul is Anchored in the Lord” by Moses Hogan.

The free concert will take place at Robert Caldwell Plaza between the City-County building and the Salina Public Library. Patrons are encouraged to bring a sack lunch or buy a meal from Chapman’s Take Away food truck on-site. In case of inclement weather, the concert will be held at the Stiefel Theatre for the Performing Arts at 151 S. Santa Fe, at the scheduled time and date.
