Lyceum Series to Close Season with Two of Truman’s Musical Groups

The Kohlenberg Lyceum Series season will conclude with performances by two of Truman’s musical groups, the University Chorus and the University Orchestra. The performances will take place at 7:30 p.m., April 29, in Baldwin Auditorium.

The University Orchestra, under the direction of Sam McClure, comprises 90 student musicians and performs regularly on campus and on tour in Missouri. It was selected to perform at the January 2006 Missouri Educator’s Association Convention at Tan-Tar-A. Members of the orchestra have recently been featured in performances in Milan, Florence, Rome, Paris and Nice and toured in Vienna, Salzburg and Prague in August 2005.

The University Chorus, conducted by Mark Jennings, is a large, non-auditioned ensemble composed of students from many of the disciplines offered on campus. Works recently performed include Mozart’s “Requiem,” Carl Orff’s “Carmina Burana” and Handel’s “Messiah.” Their Lyceum performance will feature master works for orchestra and chorus as well as contemporary, popular selections.

Free tickets for this performance are now available for students at the Student Activities Board (SAB) Office in the SUB Governors Room and for faculty and staff in the Center for Student Involvement (CSI), lower level of the SUB, with University ID.
