CLEVELAND, Tenn. — A choir from Lee University here will perform at the presidential inauguration in January, U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander announced on the campus this morning.
“We may not know who is going to be president this January, but we know that the Lee University Choir will be at the inauguration,” Alexander, R-Tenn., told a packed assembly of 1,800 students at the university’s Conn Center.
The performing choir, known as the Lee Festival Choir, will be selected from the university’s seven existing choirs and will have 200 members, said Dr. Paul Conn, president of the university. Dr. Bill Green, dean of the university’s music department, will lead the choir.
No songs have been selected yet, but they will be performed a cappella, Conn said.
Alexander said he was eager “for the whole world to hear” the sound of Lee University voices. The event will be on Jan. 21.
