Choral concert showcases student talent

MILLEDGEVILLE — For Georgia College graduate student Juli Deraney Malcom, the upcoming choral concert will be the first time she has faced the audience for a performance in some time.

For the last 15 years, her back has been to the audience as she directed middle and high school choruses in the Baldwin and Putnam County School systems.

“I’ve always enjoyed working with children and teaching music is my passion,” said Malcom. “I decided to come back to school to pursue a master’s in music education because I’m concerned about the state of our education system. I feel like if I further my education, I can help better serve the children and our community.”

Her progression from a student at Georgia College for her undergraduate degree to a full-time teacher and now back to a student has given her a unique perspective.

“I can use my skills developed from teaching as I, in turn, learn as a student again,” said Malcom. “It has been a great experience working to prepare for this performance.”

Malcom will join more than 100 other student singers to present the Fall Choral Showcase Saturday. The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. at First Baptist Church in Milledgeville.

The showcase will include performances by student soloists, University Chorus, Women’s Ensemble and the Max Noah Singers.

Admission is free, and donations for this concert are requested to benefit music scholarships.

“We are excited to bring this performance to the central Georgia community,” said Dr. Jennifer Flory, director of choral activities and associate professor of music. “The performance will feature pieces from every musical time period by such noteworthy composers as Bach, Handel, Mozart and Beethoven. We will close the concert with a work for three choirs, two pianists and percussion, ‘Dance-Song to the Creator,’ which will hopefully put a skip in the step of our audience members.”

For more information, contact the Department of Music at 478-445-8289.
