BILLINGS — The Rocky Mountain College Music Department will present a fall concert on Sunday, October 13 at 3:00 p.m. at Mayflower Congregational Church. The concert is free and open to the public.

The concert will feature music from the United States and Canada.

“Klee Wyck” pays homage to the great Canadian painter Emily Carr, evoking the wonder and mystery of the natural world.

Patrick Quigley’s arrangement of “Steal Away” marries the traditional African-American spiritual melody with an improvisational ostinato pattern.

Minneapolis-based composer Kyle Pederson’s selection “Hands Are Knockin’” uses the juxtaposition of English and Arabic texts to reinforce the universal importance of open hearts, open minds, and open hands.

Concert Choir is led by Dr. Steven Hart, conductor and Dr. Lynell Kruckeberg, pianist and vocal coach.
