Singers of United Lands Invited for 2012 Strickler Concert
Vocalists from four continents come together as Singers of United Lands, guest artists for Albion College’s 2012 David L. Strickler Memorial Concert. S.O.U.L. will join College ensembles for the concert Sunday, February 12, at 4 p.m.
S.O.U.L. is a unique professional ensemble founded by Albion College alumnus Marcus LaPratt, ’98, to develop international and cultural relationships through vocal music from around the world. Each year, the group hosts musicians from different continents, to do performance tours and educational workshops throughout the United States. This year’s members hail from Bolivia, India, Namibia and Poland.
The David L. Strickler Concert series was established in 1992 by Albion College alumni and other friends of Strickler and of Albion College. The purpose of the concert has been two-fold: to recognize Strickler’s long tenure (1943-76) as conductor of the Albion College Choir, and to bring distinguished choral ensembles to Albion College and the Albion community.
