Anderson University Choir to Perform at Star Wars in Concert  

When thousands of fans of the Star Wars saga and the classic music it spawned gather for a concert spectacular at Greenville’s Bi-Lo Center November 5th, they will also be hearing the Anderson University choir.

Representatives of the traveling production contacted Anderson University’s music department just a few weeks ago asking that the choir provide vocals for some of the selections played by the massive Star Wars orchestra. The arena show features a blend of orchestral music from the Star Wars movies, special lighting and sound effects, props and sets from the actual motion picture productions, and scenes from the movies on large high definition screens.


According to the specifications the traveling production seeks when it plays in a city, the production is seeking a “top-grade university level choir with a strong traditional vocal sound, musical literacy, ability to perform in languages other than English, knowledge of standard classical performance practices, and general professionalism.” A musical consultant contracted by the production for its South Carolina performances suggested that the highly accomplished Anderson choir would fit the bill.

Anderson University will supply the choral performance for the Greenville production, while The University of South Carolina will add the vocals to the Columbia and Charleston performances.
