Utah State University choirs are going country this year for their annual fall concert. Gone Country will be held <span class=”aBn”><span class=”aQJ”>Wednesday,</span></span> October 1 at 7:30 p.m. in the Kent Concert Hall.
Corey Evans, director of the choral program and professor in the Caine College of the Arts, said the USU choirs will shed their traditional black tuxes and dresses for boots and jeans and a night of wild west fun.
“We have fast moving stuff. We have rockin’ country,” said Evans on <a href=”http://610kvnu.com/assets/podcaster/324/2014_09_29_324_26315_2867.mp3″ target=”_blank”>KVNU’s For the People program</a>. “We also have some gospel and really slow, nice bluegrass. I think it’s a good mix of country music, both old and young.
“We’re doing some Patsy Cline, some more contemporary stuff like Big and Rich and Lady Antebellum. Hopefully it will be something that everybody enjoys.”
Evans said the concert will also feature grand master fiddler champion Laura Waters, dancers from the USU Country Swing Club, and a high-spirited wild west show.
Tickets for Gone Country are $10 for adults, $8 for senior citizens and youth, $5 for USU faculty and staff and free for all USU students with ID.
