The Lyon College Gospel Choir will present “A Gospel Celebration” on Sunday, October 8, at 5 p.m. in Brown Fine Arts Building. This concert is free and open to the public.
In addition to the Lyon Gospel Choir, Yard Voices of Praise from Pine Bluff will perform under the direction of Mr. Ricky Wade. Also performing will be the Vesper Choir from the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff, directed by Dr. Michael Bates. The Anointed Ones, a popular female gospel quartet from Cave City, is also on the program.
The Lyon choir is made up of students, Lyon faculty and staff, and community members and is in its second year on the campus.
The College has dramatically expanded musical performance opportunities for its students and others over the past three years. In addition to the Lyon College Concert Chorale and the Pipe Band, both of which have a long history at the school, students now can participate in the Gospel Choir, marching band, jazz band, and concert band, the Symphonic Winds.
Lyon is more than just a college. It's a community distinguished by its academic curriculum, unique honor and social systems, and award-winning professors.
