Kohlenberg Lyceum Series Opens with Kansas City Chorale Sept. 24

The Kohlenberg Lyceum Series begins Sept. 24 with a performance by the Kansas City Chorale, a several-time Grammy award-winning vocal ensemble that brings audiences a rich and diverse repertoire.

The choir has garnered international recognition for artistic merit. The New York Times referred to the Chorale as having “refined sound and elegant phrasing,” as well as a “vivid intensity” and a performance possessing “buoyant pulse and energetic finesse.” Conductor Charles Bruffy leads the group, a nationally recognized director with five Grammy awards under his belt.

The performance will mark a homecoming for Truman alumnus Frank Fleschner ('05), who sings with the 30-person choir.

The performance will take place at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 24 in Ophelia Parrish Performance Hall. Truman faculty, staff and students as well as community members may purchase up to two tickets for $5 per ticket (includes tax). Tickets are available now at the University cashier window, online at lyceum.truman.edu or at Edna Campbells in downtown Kirksville.

This performance has been made possible thanks to donations from alumni, friends and corporations/foundations to the Kohlenberg Lyceum Series Fund. For more information, visit lyceum.truman.edu, email pr@truman.edu or call 660.785.4016.
