Randolph concert airs on Virginia radio station this weekend

Randolph College’s spring choir and orchestra concert will hit Virginia airwaves this weekend.

Classics Radio (91.7 FM in Lynchburg, 89.5 in Fredericksburg) will play highlights from the concert at 9 a.m. Friday, followed by replays at noon and 5 p.m. Saturday and noon Sunday.

The April concert featured Mozart’s Solemn Vespers and Randall Thompson’s The Place of the Blest performed by the Randolph College Chorale and Chamber Orchestra along with the Lynchburg Symphony Orchestra. Randall Speer, Randolph music professor, conducted the concert. Classics Radio coordinated with the Randolph music department to record the concert.

Solemn Vespers is the piece that Chorale sang in Carnegie Hall this spring.
