The Lake Junaluska Singers were formed in 1954, and their legacy includes national and international performances for conferences, dignitaries and major events. Their music ranges from classical choral and contemporary works to gospel, folk, traditional hymns and musical theatre.
This 16-voice, award-winning ensemble hosted a virtual season in 2020 under the leadership of Mary Huff, director, and Kathy Geyer McNeil, associate director. Links to the 2020 online concerts, which are hosted on Lake Junaluska's YouTube page, are below.
In light of anticipated limitations on group gatherings due to the pandemic, Lake Junaluska will not have a Lake Junaluska Singers concert season in 2021. A music and arts workgroup created by the Board of Trustees will use this time to explore ways Lake Junaluska can continue to embrace music and the arts while envisioning a future for the Lake Junaluska Singers ministry beyond the pandemic. If you would like to nominate someone to serve on this workgroup, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Click here to learn more.
