Philharmonic Choir to perform free concert at Pierce

The Philharmonic Choir of Pierce College will be hosting a free concert on Tuesday, May 27 in the Great Hall.

“The Associated Student Organization awarded us $2,000 to help defray concert costs, and it will be a free concert,” said Theresa Danne, executive assistant for the choir.

The choir will be singing with Saeed Mohamadi, a composer from Persia, and will be performing his songs in Farsi. He will be singing with the choir under the direction of Terry Danne, assistant professor of music.

The choir will be singing several songs with Mohamadi including two songs written by Mohamadi: “Diar” and “Listen to my Cry.”

In between these songs, soloists including Theresa Danne and Pierce students will be performing.

Toward the end of the concert, the choir will sing two more songs titled “Carmina Burana,” originally composed by Carl Orff, and “Polovetzian Dances,” originally composed by a Russian composer named Borodin.

“The chorale is extremely delighted at the opportunity to participate with a performer of Mr. Mohamadi’s stature,” Theresa Danne said.
