University of Mount Olive to present ‘Savior…A Musical Experience’

MOUNT OLIVE – The University of Mount Olive will perform “Savior…A Musical Experience” at 7:30 p.m. on April 11 at the Paramount Theatre in Goldsboro.  

The production will include a 50-plus-member choir containing students from the UMO Concert Choir, Carolina Sound, select UMO alumni singers and select Rosewood High School Eagle Ensemble members. 

Under the direction of Lester and Holly Rector, the production begins with the story of God’s creation, which is told through song, live narration and video imagery.  It portrays the separation of God from His people, which leads to the need for a Savior.  It ends with the redemptive message of the death and resurrection of Christ.  The production features a special guest soloist, Charlie Harris, singing the role of God.  Other soloists, duets, and trios, including Lester Rector and Abijah Graham, will be featured.  Three selections will feature choreography and dance performances from Mrs. Robin’s Academy of Dance senior company troop in Mount Olive and graduate-level instructors from Arts Company in Faison. 

“You do not want to miss this beautiful, heartfelt production of “Savior” performed by this elite collaboration of vocalists and dancers,” said Holly Rector. 

Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for students.  Tickets are available online at
