Popular ensembles 10BucsWorth and 10 Times a Lady will headline the annual Big Fall Show at East Tennessee State University.
Performances in the D.P. Culp University Center’s Martha Street Culp Auditorium will begin at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 17, and 3 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 18. Admission is $10 for all seats.
Zachary Marshall, visiting assistant professor of music and a 10BucsWorth alumnus, takes on the directorship of the Big Fall Show after the retirement of choral director Thomas Jenrette last spring. Beverly Wiginton, director of the ETSU Child Study Center, returns as choreographer.
All-male vocal group 10BucsWorth will present several gospel numbers, many of which have been made popular by the Gaither Vocal Band. The group will also perform a selection of numbers from such artists as The Temptations, Billy Joel and Maroon 5.
10BucsWorth has performed at conventions of the American Choral Directors Association, Tennessee Music Educators Association and Intercollegiate Men’s Choruses, and at the White House. The group has also taken concert tours of Austria, England, France, Germany, Hungary, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands, Venezuela and Costa Rica.
Joining 10BucsWorth in the concert is the recently established women’s ensemble, 10 Times a Lady. They will perform such popular songs as “Respect,” “O Happy Day” and “Love Story,” as well as a medley from the musical “Mamma Mia” and numbers from Celtic Woman.
10 Times a Lady has kept an active performance schedule, highlighted by a concert appearance at The Cathedral of Saint John the Divine in New York City. The group regularly performs at area churches and for functions on and around the ETSU campus. In March 2013, the group will travel to London for its first international concert tour.
