On behalf of the Lindsey Wilson College choral program and string chamber ensemble, thank you for sharing in our concert!  We trust that our approach gave encouragement and meaning to you and we invite you to share comments about ways that you connected with the music during the concert.

These vocalists, who by their energy, intensity and passion, create our choral program, have indeed established a great tradition for our College, our community, and, most importantly, for each other.  For us, the music we share is a soundtrack for life.

On behalf of the instrumentalists, we want to thank Dr. Chafin, Dr. Reynolds and the choir for a job well done. It's always a pleasure to make music in Columbia (always to an enthusiastic audience) and we are proud to be a part of such a fine program.

Once again, it was a joy to share in a wonderful evening of music. Especially at a grim time of the semester, I found blessing in being lifted out of my concerns into the music that you provided. It is with good reason that the prophets have long associated the presence of God with music. I left the building with a lighter heart than I had carried in.
Thank you for that gift.

What a treat to hear some of the most cherished masterworks of the Baroque and Classical periods. And at such an extremely high performance level!

I know the amount of intense work that went into the preparation of this challenging program.

To the Choral Ensembles of Lindsey Wilson College, to pianist Bob Reynolds, to the Commonwealth Strings, and to Dr. Chafin - BRAVO!

As usual, the concert was wonderful! I appreciate all the hard work that goes into an event like this. As an LWC choir and Singers alumna, it makes me so happy to see the tradition still alive today. The Commonwealth Strings and Dr. Reynolds were fabulous. Dr. Chafin and Allison, flawless. And Gloria Moore, I could listen to you sing all day long. Kudos to all involved.

I had actually made the decision to skip Sunday evening's concert due to a raging headache, but reversed my decision at the last moment. And, just as expected, music hath charms to sooth the savage headache!

Kudos to you all...again. Here's what amazes me about you guys: You have the ability to do an excellent home concert of your "tour" music and then, less than a month later, pull off the amazing music you performed Sunday evening. That's hard work, commitment, and talent at it's best. I hope everyone who heard you appreciates the work it takes to pull off one concert, much less two. The music was indeed top-notch. The sound was mature and showed a real understanding of differences in musical styles. Thanks again to Dr. Chafin and all of you for consistently bringing great choral music to Columbia.

I'm really loving the theme/design of your web site. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility problems? A handful of my blog readers have complained about my website not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox. Do you have any advice to help fix this problem?

Last night in Castle Rock, CO, I had the pleasure of hearing and seeing the amazing Lindsey Wilson College Choir from Columbia, KY. This brought back fond memories of my own college choir spring break touring (with Ohio Northern U, another Methodist university), especially when they sang "Soon-Ah Will Be Done" and "The Lord Bless You and Keep You." In the cobwebs of my aging brain was the alto harmony. Thank you, Gerald Chafin,Wansoo Cho, and all of the fine musicians of The LWC Singers. The content and flow of the worship service (it was far more than a "concert') was inspiring. May God bless you on your journey this week and beyond.
