The 2013-2014 season for the Lexington Singers near Crescent Springs in Kentucky will kick off with UK Chorale, UK Symphony, and the Lexington Singers celebrating Verdi’s 200th birthday.

In honor of the birthdate, a performance of ‘Messa De Requiem’ will be the first of the season. The next performance will take place in Lexington and then in London, and will be the masterpiece ‘Messiah’ by Handel.

The Lexington Singers is recognized as one of the oldest choral groups in America, having performed regularly since 1959. Entertaining hundreds of visitors coming from throughout Kentucky, as well as many other areas around the globe, the group comprises about 180 voices and is funded by donations and sponsorships.

The first performance will take place on October 25 at 7:30 pm at the Singletary Center for the Arts. It is open to the public and is free to attend.

The 2014 season has been scheduled as well, and will begin with ‘The World Beloved: A Bluegrass Mass’. The annual Festival of Choirs will consist of massed gospel choirs in celebration with song. Several area choirs will join together with the Lexington Singers and Children’s Choirs.

The Pops will take place in the Lexington Center, which is a new venue for the group. Featuring desserts and drinks, popular tunes will be showcased. The season will conclude with Beethoven’s Symphony Number 9.
