Lee University’s Ladies of Lee will present a spring concert, “Songs for the Journey,” on Tuesday, March 28, at 7:30 p.m. in the Lee Chapel conducted by Lee music professor Dr. Jonathan Rodgers. 

The program will be divided into two parts: Songs of the Sacred and Songs of the Soul. Ladies of Lee will sing a wide range of literature throughout the evening, from American folk songs to songs by Renaissance composer Palestrina. 

The choir will engage in multiple languages, singing works in English, Hebrew, Estonian, and Latin. The program will also feature “Alleluia,” arranged by Lee student Kadison Beaver. Lee music professor Dr. John Wykoff’s arrangement of “Endless Song” and Rodgers’ setting of “Shenandoah,” two new works based on American heritage, will be showcased at the concert. 

According to Dr. Rodgers, this concert is a special presentation of a program Ladies of Lee will have the privilege of performing at the Tennessee Music Education Association State Conference on April 7 in Nashville. 

“We hope to garner support for this program as we share it with our Lee family before sharing it with music educators from across our state in April,” said Dr. Rodgers. “This is the first opportunity of this kind for the Ladies of Lee, and it is quite an honor to be selected to perform.” 

Ladies of Lee tours throughout the United States under the direction of Dr. Rodgers and recently went to India to serve and perform. 

This Tuesday concert is free, non-ticketed, and open to the public. For more information about Ladies, contact Dr. Rodgers at jrodgers@leeuniversity.edu or the School of Music at 614-8240.
