Ladies of Lee and Chorale to Host Spring Concert
The Ladies of Lee and Chorale will hold a joint concert on Tuesday, March 22, at 7:30 p.m. in Pangle Hall.
This is the first collaborative performance with the two ensembles since 2014 and promises to be an outstanding evening of excellent choral music featuring a wide variety of choral genres.
Ladies of Lee will showcase a variety of sounds with contrasting pieces such as "When You Believe" from the Prince of Egypt; Christopher Wong's "The Blessing," based on a traditional Irish blessing; and one number with a Hawaiian twist, in honor of their upcoming trip to Hawaii this May.
According to ensemble director Dr. Randy Sheeks, the Ladies will also present Moses Hogan's arrangement of "This Little Light of Mine" with unique beauty and power.
The Lee University Chorale will perform works from various composers including Lee University's Dr. John Wykoff, associate professor of music theory & composition. This concert will be the world premiere of Wykoff's pieces for choir and piano. Also being performed is Brahms' "Schicksalslied," a work recently performed with the Chattanooga Symphony and Chorus as a part of its Masterworks series.
Chorale alumni will also be invited to join in for the traditional singing of Rene Clausen's "Prayer" during this special event.
