Lamplighters Choir to perform outdoor concert

Open to campus community

Rachel Pellegrino Oct 27, 2020

UPDATE: Due to inclement weather, the Lamplighters Choir concert will be held Thursday, Nov. 5 at 4:15 p.m. in the Marsh Center Tent.

The Lamplighters Choir will be hosting an outdoor concert Thursday, Oct. 29, at 5 p.m. in the Marsh Center Tent. Admission is free, and the entire campus community is welcome to attend this socially-distanced event.

All protocols associated with the Keep Waynesburg Well Plan will be in effect, including the requirement of masks.

The concert will begin with the Lamplighters Touring Choir and feature several different genres of sacred music.

The repertoire includes the beloved hymn, ‘Be Thou My Vision’ in a beautiful a cappella arrangement, the song ‘Baba Yetu’ which is the text of the Lord's Prayer in Swahili with percussion, ‘Agnus Dei’ which translates to ‘Lamb of God’ and a choral version of Chris Tomlin's song ‘Is He Worthy?’ which will feature several soloists from the choir,” said Melanie Catana, assistant professor of vocal music and director of choral music.

The Lamplighters Concert Choir will follow with challenging repertoire that features “The Last Words of David” by Randall Thompson, “Northern Lights” by Ola Gjielo and “Armistice 1918” by Craig Carnahan.

The entire Lamplighters Choir will then close the concert with the song “Blessing,” made popular by contemporary Christian artist Kari Jobe.

For those who are unable to attend in-person, the concert will be recorded and shared with the families and friends of the current Lamplighters Choir, and some of the performance will be posted on social media in November.

“I hope you can join us outside in the crisp fall weather for some thought-provoking and beautiful choral music,” added Catana.

A rain date has been set for Thursday, Nov. 5, at 4:15 p.m. should the concert be postponed due to inclement weather.
