The Walters State Sensations will perform their annual pops concert April 25-26 at 7:30 p.m. in the theatre of the Judge William H. Inman Humanities Complex on the Morristown campus. This year’s show is “Teach the World to Sing.”
The Sensations, the college’s show choir, plans a high-energy show spotlighting the music of many generations. The show reflects the new popularity the group is experiencing on campus and in the community.
“Singing groups are back in the limelight, thanks to shows like ‘Glee’ and the movie ‘Pitch Perfect,’” said Laura Ritter, assistant dean of humanities and head of Walters State’s music and theatre department.
“In this production, we’ve taken some songs that have been featured on the shows and we’ve combined them with some songs from different eras. We have Billy Joel and Stevie Wonder. You don’t have to be a fan of “Glee” to enjoy this show,” Ritter added.
Choreographer Kathy McDougall has been working with the students this spring to create some original dance scenes. Based on reactions during dress rehearsals, members of the audience may want to join in the dance, too.
Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students. Make reservations by calling the Division of Humanities at (423) 585-6922 between 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday or e-mailing Glenda.Nolen@ws.edu. The box office opens an hour before showtime.
