Speech of Angels advertisementOn Friday, April 7, SUU’s Department of Music will feature the SUU Wind Symphony and Choirs in a concert titled, Speech of Angels. The concert will be performed at the Heritage Center Theater at 7:30 p.m. Tickets will be $10 for adults and $5 for students and children. Southern Utah University faculty, staff, and students are free with a valid ID card. Faculty and staff IDs are allowed one guest. They can be purchased at the door the night of the show or online at www.suu.edu/pva.

Dr. Steve Meredith, Director of Choral Activities at SUU, said, "It's always such a pleasure to share a concert with our colleagues in the instrumental area. Not only does the audience get a welcome change of timbre, but we get to perform works together, which is a great opportunity for the students in both groups."

Sara Rollins, a sophomore from Enoch, Utah, said, “It is an amazing experience when everything starts to come together. The songs that we are singing have a lot of depth and spiritual meaning. I've loved the process of finding the deeper connection to the music than just singing the melody.”

Speech of Angels will have something for everyone in the community to enjoy. There are pieces that feature loud, boisterous sounds. As well as pieces that are slow and passionate. Each song highlights the technical skills of the Wind Symphony and Choirs that they have studied throughout the school year.

Dr. Adam Lambert, "This is going to be a special performance with outstanding music. There is a special energy in the concert when you combine choral and instrumental music."

Isabelle Johnson, a freshman music performance major from Stockton, Utah, said, “We have improved leaps and bounds as an ensemble since my first semester. Dr. Lambert has very high expectations that help push the group and help us reach our full potential.”
