ELLISVILLE–Jones College’s Concert Choir was the only guest concert choir to perform at the University of Southern Mississippi’s Southern Invitational Choral Conference (SICC) held September 24, at the Hattiesburg campus. Additionally, the 105-member group was selected to be the featured choir for a teacher masterclass as part of the SICC events. The choir performed under the direction of the guest clinician, Dr. Andrew Last of Luther College for the instructor’s masterclass. Both opportunities are considered a prestigious honor according to JC’s Choral Director, Joel Dunlap.
“Being selected as the only guest choir to perform at the Southern Invitational Choral Conference in Hattiesburg was a great honor for our Concert Choir at Jones College and this was an honor we did not take lightly. Being a part of the concert showcase and performing for more than 800 college and high school students as well as music professionals from across the state was very humbling,” said Dunlap.
The JC Concert Choir performed James Mulholland’s composition, “Keramos” which translates to “The Potter’s Clay.” This choral composition was originally commissioned by the USM Southern Chorale in 1997. 
Assisting the choir as the group’s accompanist is JC’s fine arts faculty member, Dr. Victoria Johnson. For more information about the upcoming concert season contact the JC Fine Arts Department at 601-477-4094.
