More Arrangements for the Beltones

December 17th, 2012

Two of my arrangements were performed by The Beltones at their fall concert this year.

Lullabye as performed by Billy Joel
I co-arranged this with the current Assistant Music Director Jens Jacobsen.

Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing
This was a unique performance, featuring a female soloist Lauren Franklin instead of the typical baritone solo.

The Wedgewood Summer Chorale is a seasonal choral ensemble founded in May 2012 made up of current Belmont University students and alumni. The WSC is dedicated to fostering excellence in choral singing, improving sight-singing skills and musicianship, offering reading and performance opportunities to emerging conductors and composers, and providing further opportunities to improve as choral musicians working together in an ensemble. Rehearsing once a week, the choir places a strong focus on musical independence and professionalism.

Patrick Dunnevant (Artistic Director and Conductor) is composer, arranger, conductor, and baritone. While receiving his B.M. in Music Education from Belmont University, he co-founded the university’s original student-run a cappella group, the Beltones at Belmont, serving as the ensemble’s music director for two years. He is currently enrolled at Westminster Choir College in Princeton, New Jersey to receive an M.M. in Composition. Patrick is a member of the American Choral Directors Association and Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia Fraternity.
