As a studio musician in Los Angeles, he has been featured on more than 500 recordings by artists ranging from Cannonball Adderley to Frank Zappa, always exhibiting his unforgettable trademark sound. Watts won the prestigious Frankfurt Music Prize in 2014, and in 2015 was guest of honor at the Telluride Jazz Festival in Colorado. His 2016 release “Wheel of Time” includes a range of tempos and styles, from blues to calypso, waltz to post-bop and a peaceful ballad. The Tuesday Night Jazz Ensemble will also perform.

“He is one of the greatest living tenor saxophonists, at the top of his game.”

In 2014, 2015 and 2016, choir members sang in Manhattan Concert Productions concerts held at Carnegie Hall in New York, Symphony Center in Chicago and Fourth Presbyterian Church in Chicago, working with nationally known guest conductors in a mass choir. The Gospel Choir also performs in CLC’s annual Salute to Gospel Music Program (2017 date to be announced).

CLC Singers, directed by Jeffrey DeLay, is a select group of 16-24 mostly traditional college-age students.

Choir of Lake County, our largest choir consisting of 50-60 community members and students, is also directed by Jeffrey DeLay.

Chamber Singers, a select ensemble performing challenging choral music, is directed by Ingrid Mikolajczyk.

Gospel Choir, directed by Charles Thomas Hayes, will have you clapping along to a spirited selection of gospel songs and spirituals, with soloists and instrumentalists.

Due to the quiet nature of many songs, the choral program is not appropriate for children under the age of 3.
