Lee University’s Voices of Lee will present An Evening with the Voices of Lee to celebrate their new release, “A Cappella Christmas.” The concert will take place on Wednesday, Dec. 6, at 7 p.m. in Pangle Hall. 

The performance will feature music from the new Christmas CD, which features songs such as “Little Drummer Boy, “Christmas Time is Here,” and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” along with a bonus track of “Beautiful Name” from Voices’ video that went viral in July. The CD is directed by Danny Murray, director of Voices of Lee, and produced by Gordan Mote. 

“We are so thrilled with the outcome of this Christmas CD,” said Mr. Murray. “After 20 years since our last Christmas project, this selection of A cappella arrangements has exceeded all expectations, with much credit to our producer, Gordan Mote from Nashville. 

Tickets for the concert are $10, which includes a copy of Voices’ new CD. 

The A cappella group was founded in 1994 and later propelled into the spotlight on NBC’s season one of the Sing-Off. Since then, the ensemble has been invited to sing at various festivals, including the Shang Hai International Music Festival. They have toured Europe, performing at the Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris, and they have been featured performers for Christmas at the White House, as well as a guest appearance on the 2016 CMA Christmas Celebration. 

Proceeds from this event will go to the Empty Stocking Fund of Cleveland. The fund, which began in 1975, is an annual Christmas drive to gather presents for children who otherwise would not be able to open a gift on Christmas day.  

For tickets or more information about the event, call 614-8320.

Roy Exum: The Saturday Funnies

Every day, without exception, I find a number of “treats” in my daily dose of email. These funnies, and other pertinent information, are sent to me by a myriad of “Internet Buddies” who I repay by sending out some of the funniest that I collect. Think of it as sort of a “co-op” for my readers to enjoy. When The Saturday Funnies began last summer, it was what I still think is ... (click for more)
