Lindsey's Winter Band Concert gives musical close to holiday

If you missed it, the only other opportunity to hear the band this season will be when it opens the Christmas in Columbia afternoon Carnival inside the LWC Holloway Health and Wellness Center Saturday, December 7, 2019 at 1pmCT.

Thanksgiving weekend in Columbia came to a musical close at the Lindsey Wilson College Winter Concert 2019, entitled The Spirit of Thanksgiving.

Tim Allen, Director of Instrumental Ensembles at Lindsey Wilson College, said, "This is a week earlier than we normally have our Christmas concert, and because it falls during the Thanksgiving weekend, we thought it would be appropriate to open up the concert with a song of Thanksgiving 'We Gather Together' and 'Praise God from Whom All Blessings Flow.'

He gave a brief background before each presentation. And the Mountains Echoed: Gloria! was next, a musical work inspired by the Biblical passage that tells of the appearance of the angels to the shepherds in the field, telling them of the birth of Jesus and praising God saying 'Gloria in excelsis Deo!' Later, the French Christmas carol 'Angels We Have Heard on High' is quoted, interspersed with fragments of the opening section.
