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
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.
