We initiated a successful composer, publisher, and performance collaboration which resulted in the world premiere of "Words of Lincoln," sponsored by the Lincoln Bicentennial Observance.

The Concert Choir collaborated with the Louisville Symphony Orchestra, performing selections from Haydn.

The Lindsey Wilson Singers went on tour, traveling from San Diego to San Francisco, California.

In addition, we expanded our partnership with the Kentucky United Methodist Church through the Lighthouse Concert Project and were selected for a mass performance of the Vivaldi Gloria with the New England Symphonic Ensemble at Carnegie Hall.

 

Lindsey Wilson Singers

The LWC Singers are organized on professional standards to represent the College on and off campus as a performing arts ensemble. The choir studies and performs choral music from all eras, specializing in sacred a cappella anthem literature. 

The Singers have many strong traditions, including the Signing of the Standards of Excellence Ceremony in the fall, a spring tour, and, along with the LWC Concert Choir, an annual concert with the Commonwealth Strings. Over the years the Singers have toured and performed in over 30 states from Alaska to Florida. They also offer the possibility of international travel. Representative works performed with the Commonwealth Strings include the Faure's Requiem, Vivaldi's Gloria, Haydn's Mass in G, Haydn's Creation, Handel's Messiah.
