North Cleveland Church of God will be hosting the Lee University Festival Choir Sunday during its 10:45 a.m. worship experience.

Senior Pastor Mitch Maloney said the church is honored to be hosting this prestigious choir, who has been selected to perform at the 2013 Presidential Inauguration.

North Cleveland Church of God is located at 335 11th St. N.E.

The Lee University Festival Choir is a student ensemble which represents the university at special campus and community events throughout the school year. The 200 students performing at the 2013 Presidential Inauguration have been chosen from seven campus choral ensembles, including 350 vocalists, which perform regularly as part of the Lee University School of Music.

These ensembles have appeared around the world at venues as varied as Carnegie Hall, the NBC television show “Sing Off”, and St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican. The groups present choral masterworks, pop and gospel music, and standard classical literature, performing composers ranging from Duruflé to Bach to John Rutter.

In addition to North American touring, Lee’s choirs perform extensively throughout Europe and Asia and are scheduled to tour Indonesia and China this summer.

The Lee Festival Choir members represent a cross section of students from Lee University.

The Lee University Festival Choir is under the direction of William Green, who is dean of the School of Music. Dr. Green holds the doctorate of musical arts degree in choral conducting from the University of Kentucky.
