Belle Chantique women's choir to perform at TTU March 5

Tennessee Tech University is hosting a performance by Belle Chantique, the top women’s choir from Lawton Chiles High School in Tallahassee, Fla., at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 5, in the Wattenbarger Auditorium of the Bryan Fine Arts Building.

Directed by Tucker Biddlecomb, this advanced women’s ensemble is by audition only and performs numerous concerts throughout the school year.

“Students learn advanced vocal techniques from a large volume of repertoire and strive for performance excellence. The ensemble often performs outside of school for workshops, clinics and concerts,” said Craig Zamer, director of choral activities at the university.

In November 2006, Belle Chantique was a featured performing ensemble at the Florida state convention of the American Choral Directors Association, and this year, the group has been invited to perform at the ACDA’s southern division convention in Louisville, Ky.

The campus performance will be a preview of that convention concert, and it will be free and open to the public.

Two instrumentalists — John Kirk on fiddle and Dan Duggan on hammered dulcimer — are traveling and performing with the Belle Chantique choir, and as part of the campus program, they will play a set of Appalachian music.
