Sea Island Chamber Singers to present concert

in Arts by

The Sea Island Chamber Singers will present a concert of sacred music Sunday, Nov. 18, at 7 p.m. at the Sea Island Presbyterian Church, 81 Lady’s Island Drive, Beaufort.
This group is made up of 28 singers from the Sea Island Church and the community.  Charles D. Frost, minister of music at the Sea Island Church, is the director. Frost started the group three years ago to help fill a gap in choral music that existed in Beaufort.  He says that although there are other singing groups in Beaufort, there was no group that specialized in performing sacred choral music. The group was also formed in response to many requests from singers.
The Chamber Singers is one of several music groups that comprise Sea Island’s Music Ministry along with children, adult, and handbell choirs in the church’s music program.
Frost has been at the Sea Island Church for 10 years.  He is a graduate of Westminster Choir College of Rider University, Princeton, N.J. where he received both the Bachelor and Master of Music degrees in Church Music. He studied organ with Dr. Joan Lippincott, former head of the organ department and world reknown concert artist.  His conducting studies were with Dr. Joseph Flummerfelt, conductor of the famed Westminster Choir, and current Music Director of Charleston’s Spoleto Festival.
Sunday’s program will include music written by Kirk, Willcocks, Mozart, Handel, Rutter, Tschaikowsky, Heim, and Durufle.  In addition, Frost will perform Bach’s “Fantasia und Fuga” on the organ.
The public is invited to attend; donations will be welcomed. For more information, contact Frost at 843-525-0696 or cfrost@sipcnet.org.
