Washington and Lee Choral Concert: Family/Parents Weekend
Featuring the University Singers, Men’s Glee Club and Catatrici
Friday, September 28, 2018
Lenfest Center/Wilson Concert Hall, 8pm
Come kick off the choral season at W&L with the University Singers, Men’s Glee Club and Cantatrici in the first concert under the direction of guest conductor Morgan Luttig ’14, a graduate of the W&L Conducting Mentorship Program who will lead the program while Dr. Lynch is on sabbatical for the year. Following pieces performed by Cantatrici and the Men’s Glee Club, the combined women of the W&L choral program will perform the haunting Northern Lights by Ola Gjeilo, and the combined choral program men will join to perform Cover Me with the Night by Andrea Ramsey. The University Singers will premiere pieces from their upcoming Scotland tour program, including a new composition, Peace Song (Beatitudes) by Tim Brent. The concert will round out with a combined arrangement of Will the Circle Be Unbroken, a bluegrass tune to bring a bit of the Shenandoah Valley to parents and family in the audience.
Tickets are free, but REQUIRED and AVAILABLE ONLY TO CURRENT W&L students and families. Call the Lenfest Center Box Office at 540-458-8000 for tickets.
A reception will immediately follow the concert in Lykes Atrium in Wilson Hall.
