COLUMBIA, KY - This year's Lindsey Wilson College Singers' "Home Concert" will officially ring in a new musical segment for the choral group. The "Home Concert," will feature the musical group's handbell ensemble for the first time at its annual spring performance.
The Lindsey Wilson Singers will perform their annual "Home Concert" 7pmCT Tuesday, March 22, 2016, at Columbia Baptist Church, 201 Greensburg St., Columbia, KY. The concert is free and open to the public.
In addition to the handbell choir, the "Home Concert" will also feature pieces performed on violin by LWC music instructor Wansoo Cho and several choral selections by the Lindsey Wilson Singers, who are under the direction of LWC Associate Professor of Music Gerald Chafin.
LWC sophomore Katie Brown of Bagdad, KY, is a member of the Lindsey Wilson Singers' inaugural handbell choir. She said that performing with handbells has been an unexpected joy.
"It's so cool. None of us had ever played handbells before in a formal setting," Brown said. "Just getting to learn with each other, how to work in this new kind of ensemble is a really neat experience. I had never really listened to handbells before. I was never in a church that had a choir or had seen them be performed. It's really interesting to me that we're able to have sort of a choral sound with instruments."
The Lindsey Wilson Singers' "Home Concert" officially concludes their annual spring tour, which this year included stops in Arizona and Nevada.
Chafin said that in addition to giving the Singers an opportunity to perform for new audiences, the annual spring tour also exposes the Singers to a different part of the United States.
"The growth of the students is the main thing that happens on a tour like this," he said. "They grow musically, spiritually and relationally. That is the highlight of any tour for me."
