The Southern Crescent Chorale’s 2007-2008 season will continue this Sunday on March 30 at 3 p.m. at Spivey Hall, when the chorale will perform a concert entitled Norman Luboff’s Choral Legacy.

Under the leadership of director Janice Folsom, the Southern Crescent Chorale has established itself as a vibrant part of the Southside arts scene. The 70-voiced chorale is happy to be making their fourth appearance at Spivey Hall by featuring the music of Norman Luboff, whose music career and many published works span over half a century. His music has influenced choral conductors for decades and continues to magically touch millions of people. He composed for radio commercials and movies as well as for the acclaimed Norman Luboff Choir which toured for more than 20 years. That group enjoyed great popularity and widespread recognition for its adventurous yet entertaining programs. Spivey Hall is one of the world’s premier recital halls.

The concert will include many of Luboff’s most famous compositions including folk songs, spirituals and pop music. Concert goers will hear such favorites as “All My Trials,” “Black is the Color of My True Love’s Hair,” “Deep River,” “Whistle While You Work,” “Yellow Bird” and many other well known Luboff classics.

Tickets are $15 for adults and $7.50 for students and available in advance or at the door, only through Spivey Hall. They may be purchased online at or by phone at 678-466-4200. Spivey Hall is located on the campus of Clayton State University in Morrow, Ga.

The Southern Crescent Chorale is funded through contributions from local supporters of the arts, businesses and individuals, as well as the sale of concert tickets. Everyone in the community is invited to experience the musical excellence that the chorale has to offer.
