The Lexington Singers will close their concert season with some old time rock 'n' roll in their annual POPS concerts. The performance, held in the Bluegrass Ballroom of The Lexington Center on May 30th, will feature over 200 voices and will showcase classic rock favorites, like "Come Sail Away," "Sweet Caroline," and a special performance of "A Bridge Over Troubled Water," which will be a tribute to the late Jay Flippin, who served as accompanist and arranger for the Singers for more than 35 years with one of his finest arrangements.
In addition to an amazing night of music, participants will be treated to delectable desserts and drinks. It will surely be a night to remember.
Conducted by Dr. Jefferson Johnson, this exciting event will combine two of Lexington's most iconic musical groups. The Lexington Singers, along with The Lexington Singers Children's Choir will perform for the first time ever with The Torques, one of Lexington's most successful and popular rock bands. The Torques began performing in the 1960's, building a following up and down the East Coast and performing with such powerhouses as Wilson Pickett, Jimmy Ruffin and The Tams. Reunited since 1999, The Torques now encourage audiences in and around Lexington to join the fun by dancing and singing along with fan favorites and rock standards.
The Lexington Singers Children's Choir will add their unique sound by performing such numbers as "Another Brick in the Wall" and "School's Out." These songs, often covered by rock bands, will be breathtaking when performed live by authentic children's voices. The Lexington Singers Children's Choir consists of over 100 performers in kindergarten through high school and strives to provide a quality choral music education to all interested students.
Classic Rock POPS will celebrate the conclusion of the 56th season of The Lexington Singers. The Lexington Singers have entertained audiences in Lexington and around the world since 1959, making them one of the longest-running community choral groups in the United States.
Classic Rock POPS will be presented on Saturday, May 30th at 7:00 pm in the Bluegrass Ballroom at the Lexington Center. Tickets are $30 and can be purchased from the Lexington Singers by calling 859-338-9888.
