This year’s concert will feature several pieces about charity. Each group, the Collegiate Singers and the Cantabile Singers, have pieces put together to perform for the audience. It will be directed by Clarke Assistant Professor of Music Jeremy Mims.

“We will sing various pieces that deal with love and charity, focusing on the text of Ubi Caritas,” Mims said. “Collegiate Singers, Cantabile, Strings, and Melos will all perform. In addition, (Associate Professor of Music) LaDonna Manternach will sing with the Collegiate Singers a piece that Dr. Amy Dunker wrote for the group to commemorate LaDonna's final year at Clarke.”
