Kent State Salem’s Communiversity Choir Recruiting for Spring Performance
Salem, Ohio – The Kent State University at Salem Communiversity Choir is recruiting vocalists as it prepares to perform this spring with the Kent State choir and orchestra.
Male and female singers with choral experience are needed and there are no auditions. The Communiversity Choir of Salem meets each Tuesday, 7-9 p.m. in the City Center, beginning Jan. 19.
This year, the local choir is joining the Kent State University orchestra and chorus to present the German Requiem, by Johannes Brahms, on Sunday, May 8, at 7:30 p.m. in Cartwright Hall on the Kent Campus.
“This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to sing Brahms German Reguiem and I am excited to join with the Kent State chorus for this exciting and challenging opportunity,” noted Melissa Fucci, director of the Communiversity Choir and assistant professor of music at Kent Salem. “It is going to be a beautiful and moving performance. I encourage anyone who loves to sing to join us for this rare musical opportunity.”

Over the summer, major renovations were made in several classrooms on the Salem and East Liverpool campuses, changing how students learn and faculty teach.
Each campus now houses what is known as an active learning space featuring six 75-inch touch screen workstations; six whiteboards; flexible furniture; and technology that allows the instructor to share images between all the monitors in each room.
Starting this fall, Kent State University will offer an evidence-based suicide prevention course through funding from the Ohio Suicide Prevention Foundation (OSPF). The class will be offered through the Kent State College of Applied and Technical Studies’ Bachelor of Social Work program at the Ashtabula, Salem and Tuscarawas campuses.
Kent State is the first university in Ohio to provide the course to its students outside of the original course developers at the University of Cincinnati, Old Dominion University, and the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
