Singing in a new season, we welcome you to our upcoming 2019-20 Season – “Building Community Through Song.” Our 60th anniversary “Diamond Jubilee” season was full of excitement and fond memories of our 60 years of sharing excellent music with Central Kentucky and beyond. During our upcoming season, we want to bring it back closer to home to focus on community building here in our own back yard in Central Kentucky, alongside the finest audience members and arts supporters in the world, as we reconnect with some of our musical relationships from the past and build new musical collaborations that we hope will stand for years to come.
In our upcoming 61st season, we are happy to announce that after a very long hiatus from performing together in concert, on December 14, 2019, we will be sharing the stage with the Lexington Philharmonic Orchestra for the much anticipated A Cathedral Christmas at the Cathedral of Christ the King. During this very exciting year, Central Kentucky audiences will be treated to some of the finest guest orchestra conductors in the nation as the LPO embarks upon a journey of new beginnings for seasons to come. UK Symphony Orchestra conductor John Nardolillo will be the guest conductor for this sacred music holiday spectacular. Prior to our concert at the Cathedral, we will open our season with a Concert on the Green at the Mall of Lexington Green where we will be performing patriotic favorites by the lake as part of the Lakeside Live Concert Series.
Next up we will make our debut return to Transylvania University’s Old Morrison on July 3 for a concert in downtown Lexington with the 202nd Army Band of the Kentucky National Guard and other noted musicians and performing artists to celebrate our nation’s independence. As always, we will continue to bring you the best music concerts that we have to offer, including our audience favorite Pops at the Opera House in May 2020, our Lexington Singers Children’s Choir fall and spring concerts, our backpack ministry concert collaboration with First United Methodist Church in March 2020, and our much-lauded A Bluegrass Tapestry concert, a multi-media performance piece developed in collaboration with renowned photographer, the late James Archambeault, whose life and memory we will be celebrating and honoring in concert at Calvary Baptist Church on November 10 at 4 pm.
Going forward, we are reminded that in numerology the number 61 represents family, balance, and harmony – all important aspects of a choral ensemble and equally important aspects of honoring our relationships with the Central Kentucky Community. We look forward to sharing our music with you and welcoming each and every one of you into the fold of family, harmony, and balance in concert with each other. We want to meet you and get to know you even better this season, so we invite you to honor us with the blessing of your presence and affording us the opportunity to shake your hands personally, but first we will be embarking on a musical journey to South Africa where we will be making our concert performance debut in July 2019.
