Lakeland College will wrap up its annual Choir Concert Tour with a homecoming concert on Sunday, April 11, at 3 p.m. in the Bradley Fine Arts Building.
The performance is free and open to the public.
The program will feature both sacred and secular music. There will be a significant mix of world music, including pieces sung in Latin, Russian, Spanish and Xhosa, an official language of South Africa. Several pieces by contemporary composers will highlight the program.
It will feature the Lakeland College Frauenchor, the Concert Choir, the Lakeland Singers and the Lakeland Schilcutt Handbell Ensemble, as well as several featured soloists. Janet Herrick-Stuczynski serves as conductor and the groups are accompanied by Arthur Johnson.
A group affectionately dubbed the "Four Divas" will perform a women's quartet by Schubert (Psalm 23). The group includes Lakeland students Clarissa Dimel, Brittany Wierzbach, April Wasmer and Emily Rendall-Araujo.
The Lakeland Schilcutt Handbell Ensemble will play Herrick's arrangements of Journey's "Open Arms" and Coldplay's "Viva la Vida." Lakeland junior Cody Linder wrote an arrangement based on AC/DC's "Big Balls" entitled "Big Bells." It's the first time a Lakeland student has written a handbell arrangement for performance.
The annual tour takes Lakeland students to various churches around the Midwest. This year's tour includes the following performances:
