The Ladies of Lee, Lee University’s women’s ensemble, will take the stage in the Lee Chapel on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m.

The Ladies will perform pieces such as “The Castle Builder,” composed by Susan LaBarr, and “Poor Wayfaring Stranger,” composed by Dr. Jonathan Rodgers, assistant professor of music at Lee, along with other arrangements of American folk songs.

Since 1965, the Ladies of Lee have traveled throughout the Eastern United States with a vast repertoire displaying a diverse range of styles.

Along with churches and schools, they have performed at Biltmore Estate and the U.S. Naval Academy Chapel in Annapolis. They have also had the opportunity to minister in Hawaii, Alaska, Europe, Israel and the Abaco Islands.

Ladies of Lee is directed by assistant professor of music Dr. Loralee Songer, who joined Lee’s School of Music in fall 2009 where she teaches applied voice and conducting.

Songer, known for her vocal talent and wide range of vocal styles, has received first place at numerous regional and state National Association of Teachers of Singing competitions.

In addition to vocal pursuits, Songer is an active presenter at scholastic conferences.

Tuesday’s concert is free and open to the public.
