     The DC3 music department will present their annual spring concert at 3 p.m. Sunday at the Immaculate Heart of Mary church in Windthorst.
    The concert will feature the Dodge City Symphony, under the direction of Ginger Zingara; three DC3 choral groups (the College Singers, the Concert Choir and the Choral Union, with Dr. Joel Thomas, accompanist) and special guests, the Dodge City High School Madrigals.
     The 29-member symphony will play Offenbach's "Galop"; Mussorgsky's "Hopak," with trumpet soloist Seth Bush; and a Cole Porter salute featuring Katie Granlund and Toni Manke on flute, Marjory Nazarenus on horn and Daniel Dawson on euphonium.
      The symphony will be joined by the combined choirs for "Quoniam" from Johann Adolf Hasse's "Mass in D Minor" and "In Remembrance" by John Leavitt.
     The College Singers will perform "Sing We and Chant It," by Thomas Morley and "Lullaby" by Billy Joel.
     The Concert Choir will sing "Nun runt Er und erquickt sich," arranged by Ewald V. Nolte, and "Hold On," arranged by Mark Hayes.
     The Choral Union will perform "Blessed be Thou, O Lord," by Leon F. Brown and "Ain'a That Good News," by William L. Dawson.
    The combined choirs will close the concert with "The Heavens are Telling" by Franz Josef Haydn and "Blessing" John Leavitt.
     The concert will be dedicated to the memory of Rochell Banning, former member of the Dodge City Symphony and mother of choir member Kimberly Schmalz.
     The concert will be the final Windthorst performance for Zingara, professor of instrumental music at DC3 who is completing her second year at the helm of the college's nstrumental program.
     Still to come as the spring semester winds down are the wind and jazz concert at 7:30 p.m. May 3 in the DC3 Little Theatre, and DC3 commencement at 3 p.m. May 5 at the Civic Center.
