As a part of the Lee University Homecoming activities, the School of Music will present its annual Music Festival on Saturday, Nov. 3, at 7 p.m. in the Conn Center.

The program will highlight many of the university’s ensembles including Symphonic Band, Lee Singers, Voices of Lee, Chamber Strings, Chorale, Jazz Band, Campus Choir, and Evangelistic Singers.

“The Homecoming Music Festival is one of our most exciting events of the year,” said Dr. William Green, dean of Lee’s School of Music. “It is a great opportunity to connect back to our alumni musically and spiritually.”

This year will also feature the 45th anniversary of the Evangelistic Singers. Homecoming weekend will feature various events for EVS alumni, including a Friday night reception, Saturday morning breakfast, and live recording on Sunday, as well as rehearsals Friday and Saturday for the ensemble’s performance at the Music Festival. Many alumni are slated to perform with the current group in the concert.

The event will also feature a mass choir of all the vocal ensembles, accompanied by Symphonic Band. The combined choir will sing St. Patrick’s Hymn, arranged by Dan Forrest.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students. Alumni may register for Homecoming online and purchase tickets in advance at http://leeuniversity.edu/homecoming. Tickets may also be purchased through the Dixon Center Box Office, open from 3 to 6 p.m. Monday-Friday.
