Our Song1  was presented last spring, and the format proved to be so successful that it was decided that a repeat performance was necessary, according to Catawba's Director of Choral Activities, Dr. Phillip E. Burgess. Our Song2 will feature choral selections drawn primarily from the late 20th century along with traditional folk songs and spirituals. Accompanists for the concert include Mr. Jacob Hahn and Mrs. Susan Trivette.

As in the past, the program will feature the Catawba Singers, the largest choral ensemble on the campus, and the Chamber Singers, a smaller auditioned ensemble.  New this year is the Catawba POP A Cappella ensemble, a group devoted to the performance of current hits and contemporary music.  This Our Song2 concert will mark that new group's debut performance.

The one hour performance is free and open to the public.
