On Sunday, March 15 at 7:00 p.m., the Sea Island Chamber Singers will present a concert of sacred music at Sea Island Presbyterian Church. The program will include music by Lau, Wold, Lehman, Dawson, Stopford, Hobby, Trotta, Christiansen, and Faure. Charles D. Frost is director of the group. Arthur Tollefson will be the accompanist. In addition, Frost will perform Bach’s “Fantasia und Fuga in g minor” on the organ. The second half of the program will emphasize Lent. The music will focus on the Cross.
The Chamber Singers are made up of 28 auditioned voices. Some of the singers are members of the Sea Island Church. Many of them are from the Beaufort community as well as members of other churches. Frost started this group seven years ago to fill a need in the community. With a select group, he is able to concentrate on more technical issues of vocal technique, sound, and musical interpretation.
As Minister of Music, Frost oversees a full music ministry which consists of children and adult choirs, handbell choirs, and a series of concerts and music programs. Frost is a graduate of Westminster Choir College of Rider University, Princeton, New Jersey, where he received both the Bachelor and Master of Music degrees. His Conducting studies were with Dr. Joseph Flummerfelt, former Head of Choral Studies at the College and former Musical Director of the Spoleto Festival in Charleston.
The church is located at 81 Lady’s Island Drive, Beaufort. The public is invited to attend. An offering will be accepted. For more information, contact Mr. Frost at 843-525-0696 or email@example.com.
