Limestone College Chorus

Limestone’s tradition in the arts is historic and cherished, dating back to a 1939 trip to New York City by the Limestone Choir to perform at the World’s Fair.  Under the direction of Dr. Gena Poovey the tradition has continued including performances in NYC, Utah, Washington, DC, York Minster and London, England, and Vienna and Salzburg, Austria.  Today the 24-voice Chorus serves the campus with frequent renderings of the National Anthem and the LC Alma Mater, but continues to perform concerts of great variety with works by Andre Thomas, Eric Whitacre, Morten Lauridsen, and Jeffrey Ames, and presents major works such as Handel’s “Messiah,” the Faure “Requiem.” Travelling to Columbia and Charleston, SC, the group was a major component of the southeast/East Coast USA premiere of “A Melancholy Song.”
