Maryville College’s Concert Choir will host a CD release party and performance Nov. 6 at Sullivan’s Downtown restaurant, 121 W. Broadway Ave., in Maryville. From 5 p.m. until 7 p.m., the 35-member Concert Choir will sing every 30 minutes in the balcony and stairway of the main dining area.

The Choir’s new CD includes music from the 2003 Spring Choir Tour to St. Augustine, Fla., and traditional selections such as “Alleluia,” by Randall Thompson, and “Christus Factus Est,” by Anton Bruckner. CDs will be available for purchase ($20 each) at the restaurant.

“ We are very excited about the release of the Concert Choir CD,” said Stacey Wilner, the College’s coordinator of choral music. “This is the first Maryville College Concert Choir recording produced for mass distribution since the early 1980s and the first CD.”

The celebration is open to the public; however, Wilner extends a special invitation to Maryville College alumni and friends and family of the Concert Choir. For more information, contact Wilner at 865.981.8151 or To purchase a CD, log onto
