Beth Wiedeman, right, a Cameron University Department of Music freshman, rehearses with Kathy Scherler as part of her required vocal studies. Wiedeman will perform with the Cameron University Concert Choir Thursday during a special concert at the Lawton-Fort Sill Veterans Center. The choir, under the direction of Scherler, will present some of the pieces originally intended for the choir’s winter performance that was canceled because of bad weather.

Cameron's Concert Choir will give special performance

The weather may have delayed the Cameron University Concert Choir's winter performance, but the students are still ready to display their vocal talents to the community  and this time, to a very special audience.
 
Under the direction of Kathy Scherler, the choir will honor hometown heroes at the Lawton-Fort Sill Veterans Center with a patriotic program for the center's residents and their families. The performance will be free and the event will be open to the public.
 
"We thought, if we can't bring all the veterans here to see, we will go to them," Scherler said. "I thought this was the perfect place to perform this program, and this is our way to show how grateful we are to our veterans. The students are very ready to perform and they've met the challenge of learning the new music. I think the performance will be excellent. We are really looking forward to it."
 
Originally, parts of the program were scheduled to be performed during the annual winter recital at the end of the fall semester, but the snowstorm that hit the area early December canceled all activities scheduled by the university during that weekend. While there are some songs that have been retained, the students also had to quickly learn new songs to perform, especially with the holiday season over.
