BYU-Idaho Collegiate Singers to perform free community Easter concert in Afton!
A free community Easter convert by the Collegiate Singers from Brigham Young University-Idaho will be performed Friday, April 14, at 7 p.m. in the Star Valley High School Auditorium in Afton. The “Sounds of Easter” concert is sponsored by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and all community residents are invited.
Tickets are not required and admission will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Comprised of 42 of the University’s finest vocalists, the Collegiate Singers are on an eighty-day concert tour to Evanston, Rock Springs, Casper, Cheyenne and Afton, as well as Salt Lake City, Utah, and Blackfoot, Idaho.
Under the direction of Dr. Randall Kempton, the group aims to provide a wholesome and heartfelt performance of vocal music that entertains and inspires people of all ages.
“Because the tour is the week before Easter, this year’s concert will feature music appropriate for this special season when we remember the life and mission of the Savior,” Kempton said.
The group has appeared with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir on its weekly broadcast “Music and the Spoken Word.” They perform an array of music styles and sounds that appeal to broad audiences everywhere they go. Full of vibrant energy and inspiration, a concert of the BYU-Idaho Collegiate Singers promises to be a memorable experience.
BYU-Idaho is located in Rexburg, Idaho, and, through an innovative track system, serves more than 30,000 students yearly from all 50 states and more than 40 countries. The school was founded in 1888 by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
