The annual Alltech Celebration of Song was this past Sunday afternoon in the Atrium of The Square in Downtown Lexington. One of our contributing photographers, Rob Bolson, took some fantastic photos that we wanted to share with you.
The Celebration has become a highly anticipated event featuring students, faculty and friends of the University of Kentucky Opera Theatre program performing holiday favorites. Featured soloists included Metropolitan Opera veterans Cynthia Lawrence, Gregory Turay and Everett McCorvey, director of the program. Alltech is one of UK Opera’s major supporters, providing thousands of dollars in scholarship money and other support, annually.
If you missed the Celebration, you can see it on TV Christmas day. The first showing will be right after an 11:35 p.m. Christmas Eve showing of the Berea College Christmas concert (more on this in an upcoming post) on WKYT, so if you are the kind to sit up to see if Santa is real, these shows will be something to help keep you up:
12:35 a.m. WKYT (Ch. 27-1, TWC Ch. 9)
7 a.m. WKYT2 (The CW) (Ch. 27-2, TWC Ch. 5)
8 a.m. WKYT (Ch. 27-1, TWC Ch. 9)
