MOUNT VERNON - The Baron Singers of Brewton-Parker College will be performing their spring concert on Friday on the BPC campus, director Glenn Eernisse has announced.

The free concert begins at 8 p.m. in the Gilder Recital Hall of the Miller Music Building.

The Baron Singers is an auditioned student ensemble consisting of nine singers and an instrumental combo well known for its high-energy performances under the direction of Eernisse, an associate professor of music.

The concert features several members of the Baron Singers with solos on selections such as "Can't Help Falling in Love," "Oh Happy Day," "Stayin' Alive," "How Do I Live," and "Respect." Other songs planned for the concert include "I Second That Emotion," "Yesterday," "Sing, Sing, Sing," and "Your Mama Don't Dance."

"The concert promises to be lots of fun for people of all ages," Eernisse said.

Baron Singers band members are: Philip Elder, Chris Elkins, Neal Giedd, Brandon Herrington, Josh Hitchcock, Jared Middleton and Danny Steis.

In their earlier years, the Baron Singers were identified with folk music but have evolved into a very versatile performing ensemble, including styles from gospel and spirituals to jazz, pop and rock music from the past and present.

In addition to performances on campus and at area events, the Baron Singers take an annual tour during the spring semester.
