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.

Student Spotlight – Logan Henson

Logan Henson is a freshman music education major from Ootlewah, TN who’s primary instrument is French horn.

So how did he choose Lee?

“Initially, I had never thought about Lee until I participated in Lee Honor Band in my Sophomore year of high school. After that experience, I felt like Lee was the place I was meant to spend the next 4 years. I love that music is embedded into the schools roots.”

His career goals include sharing his love of music with others. “I hope to one day educate the next generation of musicians, whether it be at a college campus or high school band room.”

Since coming to campus, Logan has been keeping busy playing in Orchestra, Wind Ensemble, and Symphonic Band and getting to know the students in his Gateway. “Some of my favorite memories of Lee so far have been with my Gateway group. I love Lee!”

We’re so glad to have you in the School of Music, Logan! Welcome home!
