The University of Kentucky Women’s Choir will present a benefit concert at 3 p.m. Sunday in the Hillary Boone Center to support its trip to the
Music Educators National Convention in Milwaukee, Wis.
The invitation to perform at the conference is one of two prestigious honors that director Lori Hetzel and the Women’s Choir have received this year. The group also has been invited to perform for the Southern Region Division of the American Choral Directors Association.
The fund-raiser will feature UK Opera Theatre star Brandy Lynn Hawkins, performing selections from Georges Bizet’s Carmen, and Megan McCauley, one of the winners of the 2007 Alltech competition. The concert also will feature a new spiritual by Roger Holland II, renowned composer for the Harlem Boys and Girls choirs, and UK professor Noemi Lugo singing two unpublished Venezuelan works.
