University Shares Good Will with Chester County Neighbors
Saluting the Season in Song: Members of Lincoln
University's Concert Choir (in orange and blue robes)
presented a selection of classical and traditional holiday
music during the University's traditional Christmas Concert
held on December 6, 2001. An overflow audience of Lincoln's
southern Chester County neighbors as well as current and
former faculty, staff and students gathered in the Mary
Dod Brown Memorial Chapel to hear Lincoln's 26-member
ensemble perform under the direction of Music Department
Chair Dr. William B. Garcia. Members of the West Chester
University Orchestra string section (foreground) accompanied
the choir. The event, which was open to the public, was
a presentation of the Lectures and Recitals Committee
and the Music Department.

West Chester University Associate Professor of Music Sylvia
Ahramjian, who instructs the string ensemble, said her
group "had a wonderful time" and would love to perform
with Lincoln University again.
