As seven is considered the Biblical number for perfection, LC's all-male chorale ensemble group, the Louisianians decided seven would be the perfect number for to perform with this spring.
At their final spring concert, entitled "Seven Deadly Sin(ger)s," the Louisianians provided an evening of their own spiritual mix.
"We were trying to go with a more intimate setting this semester," said conductor Andrew Hunter. "But we want to broaden back out later on."
From songs such as "Let the Name of the Lord Be Praised" to "I Believe" to "Plenty Good Room," the group showed a range of fast, medium and slower paced harmonizing that has made their shows one of the "must-sees" each semester.
As one of the older groups on campus, the Louisianians, decked in their navy blue varsity sweaters, represent the tradition of the campus. Featuring Hunter, who is LC's band director, this semester's ensemble also includes graduates Kevin Williams and Cameron Weatherford as well as current students Andy Jordan, Stewart Screpetis, Devin Stutes and Philip Trimble. Doris Nordstrom served as the accompanist on the piano for the concert.
And just to keep the audience on its toes, the group threw in a fun, perhaps off-the-wall secular song - "Jessie's Girl" by Rick Springfield. It apparently won out over Johnny Cash's "Ring of Fire."
"We didn't have enough trumpets," Hunter said as to why that decision was made. But, as you watch the video below, you'll see that the crowd appreciated the early 1980s hit just fine as well as the rest of the Louisianians spring show.
