Songs for the Soul | Wis.Community


University of Wisconsin Eau Claire Events

Thursdays at the U Lecture and Performance Series Since 2013, Higher Vision has been entertaining audiences, bringing smiles to faces, and tugging at heartstrings with their music. While the majority of their performances are in area churches, Higher Vision has also provided music for the summer concert series in area communities, the Hungry Hollow Gas & Steam Engine Show, and the Barron County Fairtime Chapel. 202fIn addition to their signature gospel tunes, when performing in a secular venue the group adds doo-wop, Beach Boys tunes, Bob Dylan ballads, and crowd pleasers such as “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” and “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” to their repertoire. All of the members of Higher Vision are from the local area and all have been part of musical endeavors in their churches and communities for many years. The quartet is comprised of Mike Jenkinson singing lead, tenor Albin Peterson, baritone Dick Sampson, and bass John Westin. The group’s accompanist is Elaine Molls. Higher Vision is pleased to be part of the Thursdays at the U Lecture and Performance Series. Please plan to join them to enjoy “Songs for the Soul” from noon until 1 p.m. on Thursday, September 26, in the Blue Hills Lecture Hall (Ritzinger 234) at the UW Eau Claire--Barron County Campus, 1800 College Drive in Rice Lake.
