Students in Lakeland College's music department will take the road as the concert choir participates in its annual spring tour.
The week culminates with a homecoming concert on Sunday, April 13, at 3 p.m. in the Bradley Theatre on Lakeland's main campus. That performance is free and open to the public.
This year's repertoire includes a wide variety of music from many historical periods, genres and styles. Pieces include "Domine, Ad Adjuvandum Me Festina" by G.B. Martini, "Five Hebrew Love Songs" by Whitacre, "Lass Dich Nur Nichts Nicht Dauren" by Johannes Brahms, "Salmo 150" by Ernani Aguiar and "Cantique de Jean Racine" by Gabriel Faure. The program also includes a gospel song, hymns, folk songs, movie music and a pop song.
The Lakeland Singers will join the choir on the program. This small, auditioned group will sing "To Love You," written by Andra Moran and Josh Elson and arranged by Lakeland College student Jacob Nault.
