Civil War Songs and Stories

On Tuesday, February 10, the Music and History departments jointly sponsored "Civil War Songs and Stories." The opening sequence featured Drs. Scott Billingsley, Weston Cook, Bruce DeHart, and Jeff Frederick as the four presidential candidates in 1860. That reenactment was followed by the creative contributions of UNCP students and others. Highlights included the following.

  •     History students portrayed Union and Confederate soldiers and their wives.
  •     Theatre student Kayla Cox performed a monologue she wrote based on the wartime experiences of Harriet Tubman.
  •     December 2014 graduate Melvin Morris (Art) displayed several of his paintings.
  •     A student brass quintet opened the second half of the program.
  •     The second half also featured powerful arias by Music majors DeeDee Hargett, Meredith Shanahan, and Nygel Robinson, and a moving choral finale with a huge solo by Fabian Griffith.
  •     The University Chorale performed five pieces.

Many students, faculty, and staff across campus have worked to make this concert happen, and we applaud their fine work. The History Department offers special thanks to Dr. Jaime Martinez for her creativity, inspiraton, and hard work in bringing this production to the UNC Pembroke community.
