The Southwestern Oklahoma State University Singers will present a fall concert of music on Sunday, November 15, at 4:30 p.m. in the sanctuary of First Methodist Church, located at 817 N. 7th Street in Weatherford.

The concert is free and the public is invited to attend.

The concert is entitled "Conflict, Resolution and Hope" and will feature a cappella music from secular chant to Bulgarian sacred music to American Spirituals. The choir will also perform "Beneath those Alien Stars" from Libby Larsen's The Settling Years, and will be joined by the SWOSU student woodwind quintet.
