Based in Savannah, GA, Velvet Caravan is an unorthodox acoustic quintet of guitar, violin, bass, percussion, and keyboards (including accordion). Bringing together musicians from as close as Austin, TX and as far away as Venezuela and Slovenia, the quintet’s varied lineage contributes to their eclectic sound as they weave thick threads of gypsy jazz and Latin music into their own non-traditional brand of acoustic swing. Velvet Caravan’s high-energy sound showcases their ferocious technique, thunderous passion for all musical genres, and relentless sense of humor.

The Southern Chorale, renowned as the premiere touring vocal ensemble of the University of Southern Mississippi, has a long history of excellence, performing the complete spectrum of significant choral literature for a cappella and accompanied chorus. Membership consists primarily of upper-division voice majors and graduate students in vocal performance, conducting, and music education. The 58-member Chorale has an active schedule, touring nationally and internationally. Their concert for Arts Under The Dome will be the first public performance of the repertoire for their upcoming Nordic Countries concert tour in May. Dr. Gregory Fuller is in his 17th year of serving as the Southern Chorale’s director and conductor.
