Lindsey Wilson Christmas Concert on Friday Night, Singers to Perform in ‘Cave Sing’ on Sunday

Posted on Thursday, December 01, 2011 [11:31 AM]

COLUMBIA, Ky. -- Area residents have two opportunities to take in the Christmas spirit this weekend.

The Lindsey Wilson Concert Band will present its annual Christmas concert on Friday, Dec. 2, and the Lindsey Wilson Singers will perform at the Mammoth Cave "Cave Sing" on Sunday, Dec. 4.

On Friday night, Director of Instrumental Ensembles Tim Allen will lead the Lindsey Wilson Concert Band. The concert begins at 7 p.m. CT in Biggers Sports Center, 360 Spickard Drive. Admission is free.

The program will feature a diversity of musical styles from over the centuries. One of the special arrangements to be performed is "Men of Good Will," by Benjamin Britten. The piece, taken from the legendary Cavaliers Drum and Bugle Corps' 1991 performance, features the LWC Concert Band percussion section.

Then on Sunday afternoon, the Lindsey Wilson Singers will perform at the 32nd-annual "Cave Sing" in Mammoth Cave. The event, which is also free, begins at 2 p.m. CT in the Mammoth Cave National Park visitors center. Guests will depart for the cave.

In addition to the Lindsey Wilson Singers, who are under the direction of Director of Choral Programs Gerald Chafin, the "Cave Sing" will also feature the Commonwealth String Quartet and Glasgow Brass Quintet. Following the concert, refreshments and a visit from Santa Claus will be held at the Mammoth Cave Hotel.

This is the second time the Lindsey Wilson Singers have participated in the event, whose origins date to the late-19th century. The Singers' inaugural appearance at the event was in 2006.

The first "Cave Sing" was held in 1883, when area residents held a Christmas celebration in Mammoth Cave. The current incarnation of the "Cave Sing" was first held in 1980.
