The A Cappella Choir at Stephen F. Austin State University will present “Always Keep This Close” when the choral group performs at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 15, in Cole Concert Hall on the SFA campus. The concert title speaks of connections made and friendships forged when working and singing together in a choir, according to Dr. Michael Murphy, director of choral activities at SFA and the choir’s conductor. The choir will also perform music by Francis Poulenc, Josef Rheinberger, Nadia Boulanger, Brandon Waddles, Johannes Brahms, James MacMillan and others. Concert tickets are $8 for adults, $6 for seniors and $3 for students and youth. To purchase tickets, call the SFA Fine Arts Box Office at (936) 468-6407 or visit finearts.sfasu.edu.
