chorale Wind
The Lee University Chorale and Lee University Wind Ensemble will present a joint concert on Monday, April 22, 2013 at 7:30 p.m. in the Conn Center.

Dean of the School of Music William R. Green will conduct Chorale, the 36-voice select ensemble of highly motivated vocalists who are chosen by audition. Chorale performs a diverse selection of traditional choral literature.

Professor of Music David R. Holsinger, renowned composer and band clinician, will conduct Wind Ensemble, a group committed to the highest level of performance of instrumental ensemble literature for winds and percussion.

The program will include works from composers such as René Clausen, Giuseppe Verdi, Giedrus Svilianis, George Gershwin, Gustav Holst, and Holsinger.

Wind Ensemble and Chorale will join together to perform “Song of Moses,” a four-movement work for band and chorus written by Holsinger. The movements are entitled, “Listen Oh Heavens, I Will Speak,” “I Will Proclaim the Name of the Lord,” “The Lord's Portion is His People,” and “See Now That I, Myself, am He!” The work was premiered by the United States Air Force Band and Singing Sergeants, and was selected for broadcast nationally on a National Public Radio Special Project in Vocal Music in August 1997.

The concert is open to the public, non-ticketed and free of charge. For more information, contact the School of Music at 423-614-8240 or music@leeuniversity.edu.
