Lincoln Land Community College is hosting a Road Scholar/Elderhostel choral program July 10-14. Twenty-five individuals from across the United States will visit Springfield to participate in “Singing in the Heart of America: A Choral Workshop.”
A highlight of the week is a concert featuring music from various periods — both sacred and secular — on Thursday, July 13, 7 p.m. at St. John’s Lutheran Church, 2477 W. Washington St., Springfield. The concert is free and open to the public.
“LLCC Community Education is honored that people from all over the country have chosen Springfield as a place to visit and continue their educational adventures through Road Scholar programs,” says Jamie Stout, director, community education. “This choral program is a long-standing tradition, and we’re excited to invite the public to see the talent from around the country.”
Both new and returning participants come together to share in the joy of raising their voices in song. They also attend presentations that provide insights on composers and their contributions to choral music.
Sue Hamilton, retired LLCC music instructor, serves as music director, and Ann Kramer is the LLCC coordinator for the Road Scholar choral program, which is hosted annually by LLCC.
