After winning the Florence Freedom “Clash of the Choirs” competition, members of the Lexington Catholic High School Chorus will perform with ‘80s rock band Foreigner at the northern Kentucky minor league baseball team’s ballpark on Aug. 4 – an opportunity that choir director Adam Beeken says has some of his students seeing “Double Vision.”
In May, the choir hosted an ‘80s themed pop concert, which Beeken says gave his troupe an edge during the choir competition. The group performed Richard Marx’s “Right Here Waiting” to win the audition.
Beeken, who will be going into his 10th year as choir director at Lexington Catholic, says 25 students will accompany Foreigner on stage for one song, “I Want to Know What Love Is.”
“One of the groups did sing ‘I Want to Know What Love Is’ (at the local May concert), so they had some knowledge of Foreigner and ‘80s pop music going into this,” Beeken said. “Some of them are ecstatic about the opportunity. And their parents are as well.”
