Phyllis Jenness Memorial Concert
12:30am - 2:30am
In 1959, University of Kentucky music teacher Phyllis Jenness founded the Lexington Singers with thirty members. Today, the group has more than 150 members and is Central Kentucky’s premier choral group. Phyllis, who passed away on March 21st, also helped launch the stellar opera department at UK, where she taught music, voice, and conducting.
To honor our founder, the Singers will present an online concert on Friday, Nov. 6, at 7:30 p.m. Featured will be some of Phyllis’s favorite works and those she enjoyed leading and conducting during her time with the Singers, including Haydn’s “Achieved is the Glorious Work,” Mozart’s “Ave Verum Corpus,” and “Wie lieblich sind deine Wohnungen” from Brahms’s “Ein deutsches Requiem.”
This concert is free to the public. Make a cup of tea or cider, curl up on your sofa under a cozy blanket, and let us fill a lovely autumn evening with beautiful music in honor of Phyllis's life and work.
Concert videos will upload at 7:30 on Friday, November 6.
