Lee University to host first in-person Lee Day since 2019

Lee University and the School of Music are proud to cooperate on the first in-person Lee Day since 2019 and the onset of the Coronavirus pandemic. Lee Day is the campus’s largest and best attended promotional day of the year, bringing in hundreds of students and families to campus for student life events, music festivals, theatre productions, and information sessions for incoming Lee students. The much-anticipated Lee Day 2022 will be held on April 1-2, 2022 and will be hosted in cooperation with Lee University School of Music auditions for incoming music students as well as an exciting weekend of music programming, including the opening of Tuck Everlasting produced in cooperation with Lee University Theatre.

Lee University COVID-19 Taskforce team made a quick shift to the virtual platform for Lee Day in 2020 as the Coronavirus halted all on-campus activities, creating the temporary yet successful Lee Day Live event which was in effect through 2021. The university’s public relations and recruitment teams are excited and anticipatory for a successful reemergence of the in-person Lee Day experience for current students and visiting families alike. Registration is open online for all students HERE. Students interested in auditioning for degree programs in music must pre-register for an audition HERE.

Advent Now! to present Christmas concert

Lee University Chamber group Advent Now! directed by Dr. Austin Patty will present a Christmas music event in the Chapel on campus at 7:30pm on Tuesday, December 14. Each winter, Advent Now! travels to Japan to tour, perform, and minister across the country. Due to complications caused by the Coronavirus pandemic, the group was not able to travel this year. However, they bring this Christmas event to the Cleveland community this year in order to spread the word locally about what they do as well as to record a full video to send to each community in Japan that would have experienced their music in person.

The group is comprised of both vocal and instrumental students, most of them Lee University music majors, who perform at high levels and are experienced in performing in a variety of venues. Dr. Austin Patty also performs on violin in the ensemble. This concert will present many different styles of music in celebration of the season and showcasing what the ensemble performs while touring.

The concert is open to the community and is free of charge, but donations are welcome. The proceeds collected will go toward the Advent Now! December 2022 Japan trip.
