Lee University will host “Songs that Touch our Hearts” on Thursday, Oct. 19, at 7 p.m. in the Lee University Chapel. 

Hosted by Dr. Paul and Darlia Conn and directed by Danny Murray, the evening of music will invite the congregation to join in singing church favorites from the popular Red Back Hymnal, which will be provided. 

“What a fun night,” said Mr. Murray. “We always look forward to singing this great music together.” 

Hymnal “enthusiasts” from all over campus, the community, and out-of-town occupy the stage, according to Mr. Murray, who has directed this annual program each year since the Lee University Chapel was dedicated in 2011. 

This annual event has become a community favorite, so those wanting to attend are encouraged to get tickets early. 

A brief reception will follow the event. 

Admission is free, but tickets are required as seating is limited. Livestream viewing will be available at https://livestream.com/leeu
