BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — Bakersfield College Choirs will present a virtual concert entitled, “Becoming Us” on Nov. 30, at 7 p.m. on YouTube. The performance will feature the Bakersfield College Choir, Chamber Singers, and Renegade Chorus with special guests Caley Mayhall, Christina Parnell, Ken Burdick, and Tracy Harris.

Director of Choral and Vocal Studies at Bakersfield College, Dr. Jennifer Garrett says, “It has been an almost insurmountable challenge, but the choirs have banded together and collaborated with BC Professor Joseph Tipay’s drawing classes, BC music professors, as well as community members to produce this concert. It has been a team effort and we are so happy to be able to share our music during this time.”

Dr. Garrett added that the music chosen for the concert focuses on what we have been through as a community for the past eight months. She explains that “trials help us become who are, and adversity can help us become the people we were meant to be. We can all be the kind of people that can unite the world together and BC’s choirs hope to share a little bit of that with you through music.”

The concert will be free to view and will be available on the BC Choir’s YouTube Channel.
