Jeannie_Lovett_Barrick_07172012-1Our 2016-17 season, “Season of Love,” is shaping up to be quite an exciting choral season.  You can see more details through the Concerts/Tickets link on the left side menu, but one bit of news that has us thrilled is the appearance of Jeannie Barrick, guest soloist in performing John Rutter’s Requiem on March 4 at First Presbyterian Church.

Jeannie Lovett Barrick serves on the music theory faculty at Texas Tech University where she teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in music theory and aural skills.

Barrick is also an active choral musician and can be heard on Grammy-nominated Conspirare recordings, Requiem and Threshold of Night  on the Harmonia Mundi label, and Conspirare in Concert which was recorded as part of a national fundraising effort for PBS television. She has been a featured soloist with the Lubbock Symphony Orchestra and was recently a guest artist at Louisiana State University where she was a featured soloist with the LSU Schola Cantorum and presented a paper entitled, “A Tale of Two Byrds: The English Anthems and Latin Motets in the Context of the English Reformation.” Barrick made her Carnegie Hall solo debut with the Texas Tech University Choir in 2010.

Additionally, Barrick is the youth choir director at First United Methodist Church in Lubbock and is also a headshot, portrait, and wedding photographer.
