Lee to Host Music Makers, a Look at Lee’s Music History

Lee University will host “Music Makers: 100 Years of Music” during Homecoming in celebration of Lee’s centennial year. The event will take place Thursday, Nov. 1 at 7:30 p.m. in Pangle Hall.

Music Makers will take participants on a journey through the past 100 years of music at Lee. Dr. Brad Moffett, director of graduate studies in music and professor of music, will serve as narrator and guide.

In addition to video interviews and historic clips, there will also be live performances from multiple Lee groups, including Piano Trio, Jazz Ensemble, and a guest appearance from the internationally-acclaimed barbershop quartet, Four Voices. Lee alum Phil Stacey, who reached the top six on American Idol season 6, will also perform.

Dr. Louis Morgan, director of library services, will provide the audience with video and live historical commentary on music at Lee between performances by choirs, duets, ensembles, and more.

“This entertaining evening will review the growth and development of Lee University’s School of Music from its humble beginnings to its very diverse stylistic blends,” said Danny Murray, director of Voices of Lee and church relations.

This event is free and open to the public, but seats are limited.
