On March 6, 2011, as a part of their 25th Anniversary celebration, Lindenwood will sponsor The South Bend Symphonic Choir. The Choir, under the direction of Dr. Marvin V. Curtis, is the ensemble in residence at the Ernestine M. Raclin School of the Arts on the campus of the Indiana University South Bend. The choir's repertoire ranges from the choral works of the masters, to pops and show tunes, to specialty theme concerts covering a variety of musical literature. Dr. Curtis's work,The City on the Hill, was premiered at President Clinton's 1993 Inauguration performed by The Philander Smith Collegiate Choir of Little Rock, Arkansas and The United States Marine Band.
The performance is scheduled to begin at 3:00 p.m. in the Ancilla Domini Chapel located in Donaldson, Indiana. The performance is free to the public and complimentary refreshments will be served at the Lindenwood Retreat and Conference Center following the concert.
At 2:15 pm, prior to the South Bend Symphonic Choir performance, the Plymouth Community Youth Chamber Ensemble will be performing until approximately 2:50 pm. The Plymouth Community Youth Orchestra (PCYO) has provided valuable musical instruction to students interested in playing a stringed orchestral instrument since its founding less than ten years ago. Led by Director Gabriele Hill and her team of professional instructors, the PCYO is committed to providing the highest quality musical experience. This performance is also open to the public and is being sponsored by Ancilla College, a two-year, liberal arts college organized and sponsored by the Poor Handmaids of Jesus Christ.
