The University of Lynchburg Concert Choir is hosting its final concert of the semester on April 29th at 7:30 p.m. in Snidow Chapel.

This concert will be the last time for the many seniors in the program to sing in the ensemble ahead of commencement in May.

According to the Choir’s website, “the choir prepares and performs various choral literature from the medieval to 20th century,” and during this finale, they will sing selections from Ola Gjeilo and Andrea Ramsey.

Senior, Savannah Turner said, “My favorite part about being in the choir is being able to share my love for music with the campus community and building relationships with those who share an interest in the performing arts!”

Throughout the semester, the students in the Concert Choir practice for three hours each week and earn an extra credit hour towards their degree.

The graduation of the 2022 class brings many bittersweet memories for the members of the choir, as they have formed a tight bond during their time together.

“Concert Choir has made my experience at Lynchburg so rich with the community and connections it has brought me,” said freshman Alyssa Camejo. “Choir always feels like a big family, and having those musical experiences together is so special and gives me a safe place on campus that I can retreat to.”

Admission to the spring concert is free.
