Wingate, NC – The Wingate University Men's and Women's Choirs will perform their winter concert on Tuesday, Feb. 28 at 7:30 p.m. in McGee Theater of the Batte Center on campus. Music will include American folksongs and sacred music and will feature a scene from Gilbert and Sullivan's "Pirates of Penzance."

Participation in one of the four choirs on campus: University Singers, Chamber Choir, Women’s Choir and Men’s Choir encourages the students to engage vocally, mentally, emotionally and spiritually as they practice and perform,” said Kenney Potter, director of choral activities and music education at Wingate University. “In turn, the singers strive to inspire and engage their listeners’ minds, souls and spirits through informed, artistic performance.”
