Lincoln University Shares Good Will with Chester County Neighbors
(see related story)


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.


Above, a soloist lifts her voice in song. Among the selections the choir performed were "To Us A Child is Born," "Mary Had a Baby," and "O Come All Ye Faithful."


Above a member of the West Chester University Orchestra's string section adds her contribution to the musicale. 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.


Dr. Garcia (above) leads the singers and musicians through rousing renditions of "The Glory of the Father," "March of the Shepherds" and the standard favorites like "Silent Night" and "Joy to the World."
