Ladies of Lee Perform at TMEA Conference


Lee University’s all-female choir Ladies of Lee recently performed at Tennessee Music Education Association’s (TMEA) annual conference held in Nashville at the Opryland Hotel.

“We were so excited to represent Lee and our School of Music at the TMEA state conference this year,” said Dr. Jonathon Rodgers, director of Ladies of Lee. “It's an honor to have been selected through a blind-audition format. This is the first time the choir has been selected to perform at an event like this.”

Ladies presented a concert Friday morning performing in multiple languages including English, Estonian, Hebrew, and Latin. The program featured several works arranged by Lee faculty, as well as music from the Renaissance period.

“We recently presented this program on campus at our annual spring concert, and the reports were wonderfully positive and enthusiastic,” said Rodgers. “The ladies looked forward to sharing this music that has received so much of their time, effort, and attention over the past several months.”

According to Rodgers, the choir received two standing ovations at the TMEA conference, one during the middle of the performance and another at the end.

Ladies of Lee tours throughout the United States under the direction of Rodgers and recently went to India to serve and perform.

The TMEA was formed in 1945 as a non-profit organization representing all phases of music education at all school levels and aims to promote the advancement of high quality music education for all.
