The Arts Council, under the College of Communication and the Arts, announces its Fall 2017 and Spring 2018 season with another year of animated and lively fine arts programming, held both on and off the Seton Hall University campus.

The Arts Council commits to increasing the visibility of University arts and cultural events, working with the College's Classical Concert Series, Jazz 'n the Hall, Seton Hall Choir, Seton Hall Theatre, the Walsh Gallery, the Joseph. A Unanue Latino Institute and Poetry-in-the-Round to expand the cultural vitality of Seton Hall and its surrounding community.

As part of its Fall 2017 programming, the Seton Hall Choir brings its talents to NJPAC's Prudential Hall in Newark, N.J. on Oct. 27, 2017, to perform the second of three concerts dedicated to peace. The program will continue the Prayer for Peace classical concert cycle debuted at Carnegie Hall in 2015.

"This year's program will focus on the 'Power of One Voice' as an agent of change," shares noted conductor and Assistant Professor Jason Tramm. "At NJPAC, the Seton Hall University Chorus will be joined by renown vocal soloists and the world class MidAtlantic Opera Orchestra. At Seton Hall, we don't just do music. We do music with a mission!"

The Arts Council also partners with the South Orange Performing Arts Center (SOPAC) to provide elegant performances in an intimate setting while fostering the capabilities of its fine arts community. Jazz 'n the Hall is one of these programs, focused on establishing the College and Seton Hall University as an education and cultural center for jazz.

Members of The Denver Jazz Club Youth All-Stars who will perform at SOPAC on Tuesday, March 20, 2018.

"Jazz is a blend of the cultures [of our country], musical style, and expressions of old West Africa and old western Europe. Jazz, as did America, made itself up as it went along," says Gloria Thurmond D.Min, program director and senior faculty associate of music. "While each of our Jazz 'n the Hall concerts will be entertaining and exciting, I am particularly looking forward to the concert by the Denver Jazz Club Youth All-Stars."

By presenting the talented high school All-Star musicians, Thurmond hopes to show students searching for a college or university that Seton Hall is a diverse community, encouraging and nurturing creativity and innovation.
