A Midlothian graduate has been selected to perform in two Harding University singing groups.

Craig Coulter was selected to sing in the Harding University Chorus and Chamber Singers. He is a vocal music education major at the university.

The Chamber Singers perform Renaissance and contemporary music. Singers rehearse twice a week and give three to four concerts on campus each year. They travel occasionally and perform under the direction of Dr. Kelly Neill, associate professor of music.

Coulter, vocal music education major, sings bass in the ensemble.

The 60 chorus members were chosen after fall auditions to performs on and off campus. Coulter will be singing bass and performs choral classics, new works, spirituals, opera, folk songs, novelties and contemporary Christian songs as part of the group.

The Chorus also travels throughout the United States and the world to perform for a variety of audiences. Taking an extended tour in January and shorter trips during the school year, the group holds numerous concerts on campus and in the community.
