These groups practice and perform under the baton of Furman Singers director and department chair Dr. Hugh Ferguson Floyd, who leads Saturday’s culminating concert with the high school vocalists and Furman Singers. Combined, the Furman Singers and High School Festival Choir number nearly 140 voices. The choirs will perform a mix of traditional sacred anthems, spirituals, and secular settings of significant poetry. Free,
