3rd Ave. to Perform Winter Concert Dec. 7

Updated 2 years ago

Marshall University’s contemporary a cappella singing group, 3rd Avenue, will perform its winter concert at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 7, in Smith Recital Hall.

 “Our show features many of us individually as performers and creators, but will also showcase our strengths as an ensemble,” said 3rd Avenue member Cassidy Craddock, a junior psychology major. “We have been able to add a lot of literature to our set this semester, which allows us to give a concert full of variety. Most importantly, we really enjoy singing together. I think the love and respect we have for each other becomes very evident every time we perform.”  


She said the group will sing a lot of fun contemporary tunes and “a few very serious pieces of music that are symbolically heavy. There is definitely something for everyone, although a goal we have is to perform each song in a way everyone can feel and enjoy,” Craddock said.

The singers will perform under the direction of Marshall faculty member Dr. Briana Nannen.

“We have a wide variety of music this semester and are looking forward to premiering our signature tune, ‘3rd Avenue,’ written by group members Kristin Johnson and Jason Morgan,” Nannen said.
