The Lake Land College Community Choir invites the community to attend its annual spring concert at 3 p.m. on Sunday, March 26 in the Lake Land College Theater.
The concert begins with a celebration of spring. The choir will then sing settings of Psalm 23 and Psalm 150, featuring French horn accompaniment by Kevin Miescke of Eastern Illinois University. Listeners will thrill to the sounds of “Seventy-Six Trombones,” “Till There Was You,” and other favorite songs from the classic musical The Music Man by Meredith Willson. A medley of Ellington classics, with “Take the ‘A’ Train,” “Mood Indigo,” and “Satin Doll,” featuring bassist J.B. Faires and drummer Jay Ferguson, will close the program.
A reception will follow in Laker Point.
Under the direction of Nancy Caldwell, music instructor, the Community Choir is a choir of mixed voices including students from the college as well as members of surrounding communities including Arthur, Arcola, Effingham, Charleston, Mattoon, Neoga and Sigel. Ann Roedl of Effingham accompanies the choir. The Community Choir was formed in January of 1998 and performs two concerts annually.
The concert is free and open to the public.
