NACOGDOCHES, Texas – The Chamber Singers at Stephen F. Austin State University will present a virtual concert entitled “Sojourn: An Evening of Sonnets, Spirituals and Love” when the ensemble performs at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 13.
“The choral works presented on this concert represent a diverse repertoire of both festive, soulful and intimate sounds that will free the mind from the world for an evening,” according to Dr. Michael Murphy, director of choral activities in the SFA School of Music.
