We are sad to announce the passing of our long-time accompanist, composer, and friend, Jay Flippin. He passed peacefully in his sleep, at home with his family, on the morning of October 16th. Jay joined our choir as accompanist in 1976 and has been an inspiration to our singers for over 38 years. His raw talent and quiet kindness are unequaled. The world lost a true gem in Jay, both as a musician and as a person. The thoughts and prayers of all of The Singers are with Jay's wife Nancy, and his two daughters as they mourn his loss.
The Lexington Singers are thrilled to present another season packed with fantastic music! The 2014-2015 season kicks off with "All That Jazz", a concert featuring the incomparable Jay Flippin. For the past 38 years, The Lexington Singers have been honored to call Jay Flippin their accompanist. Jay's musical ability is unparalleled and his spirit, unmatched. Joined by trumpet master Vince DiMartino and dancers from The Diana Evans School of Dance, you don't want to miss this night of jazz! Next, join us and celebrate the holidays as we present Handel's "Messiah."
We will start the new year with our annual "Festival of Choirs" concert where we will again be joined by area choirs for an afternoon of inspiring gospel music. In April, we will commemorate the 150th anniversary of the ending of the American Civil War with the world premiere of a work commissioned by Dr. Rollo Dilworth, "A Time of Peace." This concert will feature The Lexington Singers and The Lexington Singers Children's Choir and will center on a theme of reconstruction and reconciliation.
The season concludes with "Classic Rock Pops". Come enjoy delectable desserts and drinks as classical music meets old time Rock n' Roll when two of Lexington's most iconic musical groups join forces for the first time. The Lexington Singers, along with The Lexington Singers Children's Choir, will lay down the beat with The Torques, one of Lexington's most successful and beloved rock bands.
