University Singers "Tour Home Concert" Tuesday, February 28, 2023 at 8 p.m. Lenfest Center/Wilson Concert Hall Tickets are free, but required. • Performance will be streamed. https://livestream.com/wlu Join the renowned University Singers as they return home from their national choir tour of Seattle, Hawai'i, Washington with an evening of a capella choral mastery. The tour will allow the members of the University Singers to work with the kūpuna (elders) of a family on the oli (chant) directly associated with that family. Following all protocol, the US will then hopefully be granted permission to come and share the oli and other traditional Hawaiian music with the Lexington audience with the blessing of the kūpuna. The entire experience should allow for a type of sharing of music that rarely can occur, for singers and audience members alike. The remainder of the concert will focus on a wide variety of music, from Bach to Mendelssohn to Argentinian composer Ernesto Herrera. Finally, the University Singers will close the program with folk songs and other works that are always audience favorites.
