Family Weekend Choral Concert and Reception featuring the University Singers, Glee Club and Cantatrici

Friday, Oct. 4, 2019 at 8:00 p.m.

Lenfest Center/Wilson Hall/Concert Hall

Reception to follow in Lykes Atrium, adjacent to Wilson Concert Hall

Come kick off the choral season at W&L with the University Singers, Glee Club, and Cantatrici. The concert will feature the Lexington debut of several of conductor Shane Lynch's new compositions along with choral favorites by Dan Forrest, Moses Hogan, and others. Movements from Craig Hella Johnson's Considering Matthew Shephard also will be featured as a preview of the March performance of the entire work by the University Singers in Lexington and at other venues across the United States. Considered to be one of the most important recent works, Considering Matthew Shepard will enthrall and move audiences with its depth, compassion, and beauty of this tragic story. The evening will close with the W&L tradition, Shenandoah. While a similar program, the Parents and Family Weekend Concert is designed for the families and friends of the students, while the Fall Concert is designed for the broader Lexington audience.

Tickets are free, but required and available only to current W&L students and families. Tickets become available Sept. 9. Please call the Box Office 540-458-8000 for more information.
