Lenoir-Rhyne University's Youth Chorus will present its annual spring concert on Sunday, April 29 at 4 p.m. in Grace Chapel.
The concert will feature music sung by the various LR Youth Chorus ensembles including the Minnesingers, Meistersingers, and Chamber singers. Pianist Freda Herrell will accompany the performance which will also include student soloists and special guest instrumentalists. The LR Youth Chorus is directed by Cory Westby, adjunct instructor of music.
Founded in 1997, the LR Youth Chorus has toured extensively in the United States and abroad. The chorus regularly performs for churches, civic organizations, and in concerts with the LR A Cappella Choir. It has also performed twice with the Western Piedmont Symphony. In June, the group will travel to Washington, D.C. to perform as part of their annual spring tour.
