DETAILS:

The Music Department and the Office of Alumni Relations invite you to participate in the bi-annual Music Alumni Weekend on February 23-24, 2018. The weekend will feature Alumni Choir and Alumni Band events. This will be a weekend to reunite and reminisce with fellow alumni, laugh and make music, and enjoy time back on the grounds of our alma mater.

This year, we are honored to feature Rev. Bryant Moxley as our Alumni Choir director. Bryant was the former Assistant Professor of Music at BC and is the current Minister of Music at Wake Forest Baptist Church. Since 1985, he has served as minister of music at six churches and spent 12 years at Bluefield College. Bryant is active in various organizations including ACDA, MTNA, and the Hymn Society of America. 

The Alumni Band will be directed by Dr. Charles Priest, Bluefield College's Music Department Chair. Dr. Priest came to Bluefield College in 2010 and currently directs the Concert Band and Stadium Band.

You'll also have the opportunity to meet Dr. John-Scott Moir, who joined Bluefield College as Director of Choirs and Voice in 2016.

FAQ

1. What about my spouse?

Your spouse or significant other is more than welcome to sing or play with us if they are musical. If not, they are welcome to "hang out" around campus (Library, SAC, campus nature trail, etc…) or to take in all of the amenities of the Bluefields!

2. Who can attend?

Anyone who considers themselves an alum/friend of the BC Music Department is encouraged to attend. Whatever era, whatever ensemble, whatever your major - if you participated in music at BC, we want you to attend and to bring your college friends. Please help spread the word. Despite our best efforts, someone might not be invited unless you contact them. Only you can persuade your circle of friends to participate.

3. What will we wear for the concert?

Men: White long-sleeve dress shirt, black pants, black shoes, and a black tie; Ladies: Black dress/skirt (at least ankle length)

4. Can I just show up without Pre-Registration?

Yes, but it will be a big help to us to have your reservations so we can have enough copies of the music and enough food.
