Hattiesburg – Coahoma Community College shined last week as its top choir students joined choir members from community colleges across the state to form an Honor’s Mass Choir with one Tiger selected to cap off the event with a solo during the University of Southern Mississippi’s (USM’s) Invitational Choral Conference (SICC).

Pioneered by Dr. Gregory Fuller, director of choral activities at USM, the annual conference is designed to expose students to talented singers from all across the state of Mississippi as they work with superstar guest clinicians throughout the country. The MACJC Choral Director's Association unanimously supports this conference each year.

“The SICC conference is very unique in its own way as it does not require students to come with music previously learned but rather rehearsed on site through a series of very intense sessions with outstanding clinicians,” said CCC Director of Choir Activities Kelvin Towers. “On Day 2, the mass choir performs in concert along with the High School Honor's Mass Choir segment.”

During this year’s SICC Concert, hosted Tuesday, Sept. 29, in Hattiesburg, CCC freshman Choral Music major Michael Steele of Tutwiler, MS was selected to sing the solo part to the finale selection.

Towers said that he was thrilled that one of his students was selected for the competitive solo part.

"I was very proud and got one of my birthday wishes,” Towers said.
