Greetings, Salem Families!
 
We’re thrilled to bring this newsletter to you to share some highlights of all that’s going on at Salem as we look ahead to the busy month of November.
 
Our students have been eagerly preparing for choir and dance performances, the International Dinner and Show, and the Salem College Center for Women in Business’ annual conference for professional and personal development being held downtown in the Wake Forest Innovation Quarter for the first time on November 17. We also continue to celebrate the accomplishments of our athletics teams, with our volleyball team breaking their total-win record mid-way through October and USA South Coach-of-the-Year Jay Callahan leading our soccer team to the first round of their conference championship in a home match this weekend.
 
We’re looking forward to seeing many of you on campus next weekend for Salem College Family Weekend 2017. There’s no need to register in advance if you’d still like to come! Here’s the link for more information:
 
All best wishes,

Salem Sings! Concert Scheduled for November 3

The Salem College Chamber Choir, Chorale, and SuperTonix will deliver an evening of choral delights, spanning from the Renaissance period through the twenty-first century. The choirs, along with the Winston-Salem Youth Chorus, will combine quality with diversity to bring you a musical memory to last a lifetime. World music, spirituals, Bach, Whitacre, and selections from Britten’s A Ceremony of Carols, will create an exciting musical experience.  

The Salem College Choirs are joined by world-renowned composer, singer, and conductor Dr. Rosephanye Powell from Auburn University, as they perform selected anthems and her major work, “The Cry of Jeremiah” for organ, choir, and orchestra.

A Silent Auction to raise money for the Choirs will take place during the evening, with bidding concluding after the concert.

The choirs are conducted by Dr. Sonja Sepúlveda.
