D-Day Anniversary Prepares LWC Singers for Normandy Ceremony

Posted on Thursday, June 06, 2013 [11:23 AM]

COLUMBIA, Ky, -- A select ensemble from the Lindsey Wilson College Singers have accepted an invitation to perform July 4 at a Memorial Recital and Wreath-Laying Ceremony at the American Cemetery at Normandy, France.

 

To prepare for the July 4 concert, the LWC students have met with people in the region who have a direct connection with the D-Day invasion, which commenced June 6, 1944. It was the largest amphibious invasion in world history.

 

One of the more memorable meetings came during the spring semester when the students visited with Frances Glasgow of Columbia. Glasgow's late husband, Glenn, served as an Army medic who was part of the first invasion at Omaha Beach.

 

"On this D-Day anniversary, we pause to remember those who fought for the cause of freedom during World War II as well as recognize what a tremendous honor it is to represent Lindsey Wilson College and our local community at Normandy and in the Paris Choral Festival," said LWC Director of Choral Ensembles Gerald Chafin.

The students who will participate in the July 4 event in Normandy are: John Brown of Albany, Ky.; Allison Chafin  of Columbia; Amber Clark of Kennesaw, Ga.; Jeremy Cloyd of Tompkinsville, Ky.; Kailyn Conner of Albany, Ky.; Andrew Ferguson of Columbia; Chelsea Pike of Campbellsville, Ky.; Emily Ramage of Columbia; Bailey Scott of Auburn, Ky.; Christian Talley of Columbia; and Lydia Tiller of Columbia.
