Washington and Lee University presents the Winter Choral Concert on March 12 at 8 p.m. in Wilson Concert Hall in the Lenfest Center for the Performing Arts. The performance will feature W&L’s University Singers, Glee Club and Cantatrici.

The performance is free, but tickets are required and available online. The event will also be streamed online at https://go.wlu.edu/livestream.

With widely diverse music and creative storytelling, the program has been crafted by conductors Shane Lynch, professor of music and director of choral activities; Lacey Lynch, lecturer of music; and student members of the Choral Conducting Mentorship Program (CCMP). The concert will open with Hugo Distler’s “Lobe den Herren,” followed by the Glee Club’s exploration of friends and fellowship in a themed set centered around Veljo Tomis’ “Pikse Litaania” (“Litany to Thunder”), an evocative ancient Estonian prayer for the end of a massive drought. The set will feature solos by Scott Williamson, visiting assistant professor of music, Michael McLaughlin ’23 and Zaria Daniels ’26.

Cantatrici will then perform a set of music and poetry based on women’s empowerment, crafted by Shane Lynch, the CCMP members of Cantatrici, and student and faculty representatives of W&L’s Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies program. Finally, the choirs will join at the end to wish the audience farewell with Eoin Conway’s beautiful rendition of “The Parting Glass.”

Order your tickets online today or call the Lenfest Center box office at 540-458-8000 for ticket information. Box office hours are Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-4 p.m.
