UK Women's Choir Racing for a Cure

Published: Oct 4, 2012

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Oct. 4, 2012) — The University of Kentucky Women's Choir will join approximately 7,000 other people from around the Bluegrass this Saturday, Oct. 6, for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. The UK Women's Choir has succeeded in raising enough money for a team of more than 20 students, friends, and family members to run and an additional 10 other choir members will be volunteering on race day.

 

The women’s choir first started participating in Race for the Cure in 2010. "Race for the Cure is an awesome way for the University of Kentucky Women’s Choir to get to know each other better, while helping out those around us," said women’s choir president Rachel Arrastia. "It’s a simple and fun way for us to give back to the community and those who have supported us over the years."

 

Lexington's Race for the Cure, which will start at Centre Pointe, begins at 9 a.m., Oct. 6. There will also be a variety of breast cancer survivor events surrounding the race, scheduled to begin at 8 a.m.

 

The UK Women's Choir, housed in the UK School of Music at the UK College of Fine Arts, is made up of more than 100 women of all ages and academic disciplines. The choir has been internationally recognized while under the direction of Associate Director of Choirs Lori Hetzel, traveling to England, Ireland and Wales for their third international tour this summer. More recently, Hetzel and the choir have been invited to serve as a demonstration choir at the 2013 American Choral Directors Association (ACDA) National Conference in Dallas, Texas, in March.

 

Even though members of the UK Women’s Choir devote a lot of time to making music together, the women also enjoy finding opportunities to help people in the community. "It is important for the women in the choir to remember real life events outside the classroom and to always be thinking about the needs or concerns of others," Hetzel said.
