Centenary voice students are preparing for a round of Camerata performances that will culminate in a concert at Yale for the National Collegiate Choral Organization biennial conference on Nov 5. Performing with the students will be cellist Ruth Drummond, longtime performer with the late Shreveport Symphony Orchestra and leader of the Baroque Artists of Shreveport.

"We are very excited that Ruth will be playing the piece Miserere by Belgian composer Rudi Tas with Camerata. The work is a complex piece for accapella choir and virtuoso cello. We are thrilled that Ruth will go with Camerata to Yale to perform for the National Collegiate Choral Organization conference," said Camerata director Julia Thorn.

See a performance at Centenary's Anderson Auditorium on Fri, Oct 23, 7:30 pm. Admission is free and open to the public.
