COLUMBIA, Ky. --
The Lindsey Wilson College community will close out the college's
2011-12 cultural affairs schedule with two concerts.
On Sunday, April 29, the Lindsey Wilson choral ensembles will be
joined by the Commonwealth Strings and LWC Professor of Music
Robert Reynolds for an evening concert at Columbia Christian
The concert begins at 7 p.m. CT at Columbia Christian Church, 206
Then on Sunday, May 6, the Lindsey Wilson Concert Band will give a
2 p.m. CT concert at Biggers Sports Center, 360 Spickard
Both concerts are free and open to the public.
The April 29 concert will be directed by LWC Associate Professor
of Music Gerald L. Chafin. It will feature the choral
pieces Vivaldi's Gloria and Haydn's Missa
Brevis. Featured student soloists will be Gloria
Moore of Columbia, soprano, and Jessica Massengale of Vine Grove,
Ky., contralto, with Allison Chafin of Columbia, as the assistant
conductor of choral ensembles. Reynolds will perform Mozart's
"Piano Concerto No. 14 in E Flat, K. 449."
The concert will also mark the 15th time LWC's choral program has
collaborated with members of the Louisville, Ky.-based Commonwealth
"We have enjoyed a collaborative partnership with the Commonwealth
musicians for 15 years," Chafin said. "And, of all the concerts we
have recently produced, this concert will have the most classic,
elegant and formal appeal for listeners."
Haydn's Missa Brevis will serve as a warm-up for 15 LWC
students who will travel in June to Italy to take part in the Rome
International Choral Festival at the Vatican.
The May 6 concert by the LWC Concert Band will be directed by
Director of Instrumental Ensembles Tim Allen. The concert will feature an
eclectic collection of compositions, from Mozart to Glenn
"A concert that everyone should enjoy," Allen said. "Such a
variety, from serious Mozart to as light as (Miller's arrangement
of) 'Pennsylvania 6-5000.'"
