Lee University’s Choral Union will present its fall performance, “Selah,” on Thursday, Oct. 10, at 7:30 p.m. in Pangle Hall. This concert will be conducted by Dr. Joshua Cheney, assistant professor of choral music at Lee.

“Selah” will explore choral music used in worship across time and place. Performers will engage with music from both ancient and modern Anglican tradition, 19th century German Protestantism, contemporary American Protestantism, Catholicism, the African American spiritual tradition, African folk song, and American shape-note singing. 

The ensemble will present music by Western masters like Franz Liszt, Thomas Tallis, and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, along with the works of living composers Alice Parker, Craig Courtney, and Rosephanye Powell. 

Choral Union performs choral music and major masterworks for mixed chorus and orchestra. Previous performances include Bernstein’s “Chichester Psalms,” Handel’s “Messiah,” Honegger’s “King David,” and Poulenc’s “Gloria.”

Dr. Cheney joined Lee’s faculty in the fall of 2018 and leads both Choral Union and Men’s Chorale. He received his Doctor of Musical Arts from Louisiana State University, his Master of Music from Mercer University, and his Bachelor of Arts from Campbell University. While serving as a graduate teaching assistant at LSU, Cheney was the conductor for Chamber Singers and assistant conductor for the A Capella Choir and Tiger Glee Club.

This concert is free, non-ticketed, and open to the public. Pangle Hall is on the corner of Church Street and Central Avenue.
