Lee’s Chorale will present its annual spring concert on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. in the Lee Chapel.  

“All Creation Sings” will present musical selections with the elements of creation and nature as the connecting thread.  The program begins with choral selections that speak to the Creator and the different elements of God's creation, including the familiar hymn, “All Creatures of Our God and King.” 

“This wonderful text sets the tone for the entire program realizing that God is the centerpiece of our world and His creation,” said Dr. William Green, dean of the School of Music.  

The program continues with selections that tie human nature to the wonder of creation.  This is done with texts that compare attributes such as "more fair is she than April rain" in Clements "Flower of Beauty" or "I would live in your love as the sea-grasses live in the sea," a Sara Teasdale text set by composer Stephen Chatman. 

Other pieces include "The Sounding Sea" by Eric William Barnum, "Across the Vast Eternal Sky" by Ola Gjielo, "God is Seen" by Alice Parker, and the familiar spiritual, "He's Got the Whole World in His Hands.”

The Lee University Chorale, directed by Dr. Green, serves the university as the premier ensemble for standard choral music. They have been featured in performances at Carnegie Hall and many of Italy’s cathedrals including performances at the Vatican and St. Mark’s Cathedral in Venice.  They have participated in a choral residency at cathedrals in Ireland including St. Patrick's Cathedral and the Waterford Cathedral.

The Chorale concert is open to the public and free of charge, but tickets are required due to an anticipated capacity crowd. Tickets are available through the Lee University Box Office, Monday-Friday from 3-6 p.m., or by calling 614-8343.

For information about the concert, contact Lee’s School of Music at 614-8240.
