University Singers

The Washington and Lee University Singers will present a final performance for the academic year under the direction of Shane M. Lynch on May 22 at 8 p.m. in Wilson Concert Hall. The performance is free and open to the public, and no tickets are required.

The concert will feature favorite works throughout 2017-2018 selected by the seniors, focusing mainly on highlights from their tour during February Break.

While the final selections won’t be made until a few days before the performance, , attendees can most likely expect to hear works by J.S. Bach, Ēriks Ešenvalds, Dan Forrest, Stephen Paulus and, as always, the group will close the concert with “Shenandoah,” arranged by James Erb.

“The concert began in part because there are always a decent number of University Singer members who have family that have never seen them perform live,” said Shane Lynch director of Choral Activities and associate professor of music. “University Singers has been an integral and extremely meaningful part of their college experience, and while the Livestream technology is amazing, it’s just not the same as being there in the house. This gives us a chance to sing for family and friends one last time.”
