The Utah State University Logan campus University Chorale united with the USU Eastern campus Concert Choir to present "Out of the Deep" on Saturday in the Price City Civic Auditorium.

"Current members of the USU Eastern choir were impacted by the 2007 Crandall Canyon mine disaster, and this performance is to commemorate those affected by the disaster," said Greg Benson, vice chancellor of USU Eastern.

Carbon and Emery counties are places where many livelihoods come from the earth and the 2007 mine disaster greatly impacted the people there.

"As I remembered back to the Crandall Canyon Mine disaster five years ago, 'Requiem' by John Rutter caught my attention," said Michael Huff, director of the USU Logan University Chorale. "I could imagine the pleas from out of the deep to see loved ones once more and I built the program from these imaginings."

The second movement of "Requiem," "Out of the deep have I called unto thee, O Lord," inspired Huff and from there the program was created. The program featured spirituals that give voice to hope and faith. The final piece was be "My God Is Rock"- a subject that was chosen to be close to the hearts of many in Carbon and Emery counties.

The USU Eastern Choir is a non-auditioned ensemble full of students of all academic degrees. The students are able to further their music skills and enjoy the experience while studying subjects other than music.
