Lee University’s annual concert of Christmas music, “A Classic Christmas,” will take place Sunday, Dec. 7 at 3 p.m. in the Conn Center. The concert’s 25th year celebration will feature Lee’s Choral Union, Chorale, Symphony Orchestra, Children’s Chorale, and Lenena Brezna, soprano, one of the newest School of Music faculty members.This year’s concert will feature music from “The Many Moods of Christmas,” a series of Christmas carol arrangements made popular by Robert Shaw. The suites include portions of “Good Christian Men, Rejoice,” “Silent Night,” “O Come, All Ye Faithful,” “Joy to the World,” “Away in a Manger,” “The First Noel,” “O Little Town of Bethlehem,” and “Deck the Halls.” Seasonal favorites like “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” and “O Holy Night” are also on the program, as well as “Betelehemu,” a Nigerian Christmas carol.“The original inspiration for ‘A Classic Christmas’ was the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Chorus’ performances of Christmas classics, including Shaw’s Christmas suites,” said Dr. William R. Green, dean of the School of Music. “We wanted to celebrate the concert’s 25th anniversary by bringing them back for our community to enjoy.” Green conducts Choral Union and Chorale. Symphony Orchestra is directed by Artist-in-Residence Robert Bernhardt, and Dr. Jonathan Rodgers, assistant professor of music, will guest conduct for this concert. The Children’s Chorale is directed by Joshua Wenger, choral director at Lake Forest Middle School in Cleveland and alumnus of Lee’s master of music education program. Brezna, a former Miss Mississippi who has performed with numerous operas and symphonies, is in her first year as a member of Lee’s full-time faculty.“This concert is our gift to the community,” Green said. “Our goal has always been to bring a high quality Christmas musical experience to Cleveland. This year, we are focusing particularly on familiar music that the whole family can enjoy.”Tickets are free, but required due to limited seating. Tickets can be reserved at the Dixon Center Box Office and by phone at 423-614-8343.

Lee University student Jonathan Clark recently presented at the fall
Southeastern Sectional Meeting of the American Mathematics Society. ...more
By Britain Miethe Lee University student Jonathan Clark recently presented at the fall Southeastern Sectional Meeting of the American Mathematics Society (AMS). His presentation was titled “An Application of a Generalized Parameterization of Conic Sections.” Clark’s presentation took a closer look at the connection between the two- and three-dimensional definitions of conic sections. Using vector calculus and linear algebra Clark was able to uniquely model three-dimensional conic sections, which, when added to two-dimensional versions of the sections, resulted in a special curve called an oblique strophoid.
According to Dr. Jeneva Moseley, Lee University assistant professor of mathematics and Clark’s advisor for the presentation, Clark was among only about four percent of the presenters for the AMS meeting who were undergraduate students, while the majority of presenters had their doctorates. “I could not be more proud of Jonathan Clark,” said Moseley. “Of all the presentations I saw at the conference, Jonathan's was the most interesting and well-articulated. He responded to questions with confidence and communicated his mathematical results extremely effectively.”
The AMS’s programs and services for its members and the global mathematical community include professional programs, publications, meetings and conferences, support for young scholars programs, tools for researchers and authors, and a public awareness office that provides resources to members, students, teachers, the media, and the general public. Clark is a resident of Cleveland and a graduate of Walker Valley High School. While at Lee, he has earned a cumulative GPA of 3.87, granting him the Honors Scholarship. Clark tutors students in math, physics, and physical chemistry, and he is the treasurer of Lee Prime, the Lee University math club. While taking a research-based course here at Lee, Clark recently completed an article which is under review by the Mathematical Association of America’s Mathematics Magazine. He devotes much of his time to independent research and studying to prepare for graduate school, where he plans to study applied mathematics, particularly theoretical physics.For more information on the AMS, please visit http://www.ams.org/.
