LEXINGTON, Ky.—The 36-member Transylvania University Choir will perform at Transylvania at the conclusion of their winter tour. The performance, which is free and open to the public, is Friday, January 12, at 7:30 p.m. in Carrick Theater.


The choir will perform in six cities in six days on their winter tour, including Louisville; Pensacola, Florida; Tuscaloosa, Alabama; Griffin, Georgia; Atlanta, Georgia; and Chattanooga, Tennessee.


Selections for the performance will include Bright Morning Star, a Kentucky Appalachian folksong, Deep River, a traditional spiritual, as well as classic pieces Ave Maria and Gloria tibi, Domine.


Under the direction of Gary Anderson, Transylvania professor of music and director of choral ensembles, the choir toured Austria, Hungary and the Transylvania region of Romania this past May as part of Transylvania’s innovative May term. They gave concerts in Vienna and Krems, Austria, Budapest and Szentendre, Hungary and Sibiu, Romania, in the Transylvania region. In 2003, the choir toured Russia, Finland and Sweden. Continental tours are scheduled during the years when the choir does not travel abroad.
