Lee University’s Symphony Orchestra will present its spring concert on Monday, March 19, at 7:30 p.m. in Lee’s Pangle Hall. 

Robert Bernhardt, artist-in-residence at Lee, will conduct the program, which will feature the winners of the Lee Student Concerto Competition. 

“I look forward each spring to presenting the winners of our Concerto Competition, and as in year’s past, we have a wonderful mix of talent and music which should combine for a remarkable and entertaining concert,” said Maestro Bernhardt. “Also on the program will be Franz Liszt’s tone poem, ‘Les Preludes,’ and we’ll end the concert with a special encore, which I’ll announce from the stage.” 

The competition winners will play music by Beethoven, Brahms, Haydn, and Mozart, as well as arias from operas by Donizetti and Carlisle Floyd. 

Maestro Bernhardt joined Lee’s faculty in the spring of 2011. He also serves as music director emeritus and principal pops conductor of the Chattanooga Symphony and Opera, and principal pops conductor of the Louisville Orchestra and Grands Rapids Symphony. He was formerly the music director and conductor for 19 seasons with CSO, and he is the first to hold the title emeritus. He is also a frequent guest conductor for the Boston Pops and Edmonton Symphony Orchestra.  

The Symphony Orchestra is an ensemble of select instrumentalists which performs one major concert each semester. Its musicians frequently participate in opera, choral, and other concerts on campus. 

The concert is free, non-ticketed, and open to the public.

TVA Land Grab

The Georgetown land grab is just ‘Business as Usual’ for TVA. For the past 80 years they’ve shown their stripes in this matter - 170,000 acres seized at LBL, countless acreage taken in the Tennessee River Valley. Land taken for coal and nuclear sites. All by the same play book. All from average people. We want this, you have this, we get this. I worked with TVA as a ... (click for more)

Oh, for decades I’ve know the annual Army-Navy football game, the latest just played this weekend, was special. A half-century ... (click for more)
