Serve Daily - - BUILDING COMMUNITY - By Ginny Ack­er­son

On Sun­day, Feb. 15, at the Springville Mu­seum of Art, the Con­sor­tium En­sem­ble will present a ro­man­tic evening of mu­sic start­ing at 4:30 p.m. As part of the Springville Arts Com­mis­sion’s Sun­day Con­cert Se­ries, this event is free and open to the pub­lic. Bring your sweet­heart and en­joy the dreamy am­bi­ence of the mu­seum and the res­o­nant voices of this tal­ented group. The mu­seum is lo­cated at 126 E. 400 South in Springville.

The Con­sor­tium En­sem­ble con­sists of seven male voices singing a cap­pella and is rec­og­nized as one of the finest singing en­sem­bles in Utah. Fea­tur­ing alumni from the most pres­ti­gious choirs and en­sem­bles in the Utah and Salt Lake val­leys - the Mor­mon Taber­na­cle Choir, BYU Singers, Vo­cal Point, U of U Singers, and Reprise bar­ber­shop quar­tet - the Con­sor­tium En­sem­ble com­bines unique clas­si­cal col­ors and voices, per­form­ing mu­sic styles span­ning hun­dreds of years from the Re­nais­sance to con­tem­po­rary, pro­duc­ing a sound un­like any other en­sem­ble in the area. The per­form­ers are Ricky Parkin­son, Rex Kocher­hans, Shane Warby, Adam Grif­fiths, An­thony Gard­ner, Scott Moore and Joel Gille­spie.

Next month, on March 15 at 4:30 p.m. at the mu­seum, the Nebo Phil­har­monic Orches­tra will per­form under the di­rec­tion of Lau­risa Christof­fer­son. The Nebo Phil­har­monic Orches­tra is a 75-piece sym­phony orches­tra of mu­si­cal ex­cel­lence and un­usual ver­sa­til­ity. Each year, the orches­tra en­thralls au­di­ences in a wide va­ri­ety of venues rang­ing from for­mal con­certs to fairs and rodeos.
