LINCOLN’S CONCERT CHOIR HOLDS CHRISTMAS EVENT

LINCOLN UNIVERSITY, PA. - The Lincoln University Concert Choir will hold its annual Christmas Concert on Thursday, November 30 at 7 p.m. at the Oxford Presbyterian Church, 6 Pine Street in Oxford.

A highlight of the concert will be the choir’s rendition of “Mass in G” by Franz Schubert. Works by Javier Busto, John W. Work, Amadeus Mozart and Georg Frideric Handel also will be performed. The choir will be joined by the Oxford Presbyterian Church Choir to sing the hallelujah chorus from Handel’s Messiah.

Student soloists will be featured and include sopranos Makiah Brown, Ashley Howard, Karla Prattis, and Naheemah Robinson; alto Talesia Felder; tenors Kaelen Coleman, Mark Collier, and Ryan James-Turner; and basses Michael Dickerson, Robert Green, and Leonard Worley.

Dr. William C. Garcia, a professor of music, is the choir’s artistic director and conductor.  Ms. Paula Reynolds will serve as the accompanist and Peter Slaugh, a Lincoln graduate, will conduct the Oxford Presbyterian Church Choir.

The concert choir has an active schedule during the academic year.  In addition to performances at all major university Convocations, the choir’s most recent performance away from campus was the 19th Annual Thurgood Marshall Scholarship Fund dinner in New York.  During its annual spring concert in April, the choir presented concerts in Hartford, Stamford, and Bridgeport, Connecticut as well as Newark and East Orange, New Jersey.

The annual Christmas event is sponsored jointly by the University Lectures and Recitals Series and the Oxford Presbyterian Church, where the pastor is the Rev. Kerry Slinkhard.  The event is free and open to the public.

Founded in 1854, Lincoln University is a premier, Historically Black University that combines the best elements of a liberal arts and sciences-based undergraduate core curriculum and selected graduate programs to meet the needs of students living in a highly technological and global society.  The university is nationally recognized as a major producer of African Americans with undergraduate degrees in the physical sciences.
