YMCF.HillmanMore than 100 young men recently gathered in Providence, Rhode Island, not to compete in a sport or debate in a tournament, but to sing.

Under the leadership of Jamie Hillman, assistant professor of music, and a group of Gordon music students, the singers participated in the 2014 Young Men’s  Choral Festival sponsored by the Providence Singers. Hillman, along with student conductor Alessio Tranchell, lead the Gordon College Men’s Choir in songs such as Festival Sanctus  (John Leavitt);  My Lord, What a Morning   (arr. R. Lee Gilliam); and Geographical Fugue  (Ernst Toch). Hillman was invited because of his extensive background and expertise in choral conducting, and also conducted the Young Men’s Choir Festival final concert with songs such as: Cripple Creek   (arr. Ken Berg); Dirait-on   (arr. Morten Lauridsen) and No Ne Li Domi   (arr. Jester Hairston). To watch a short video of the event, click here.
