Next month will be the final concert for Allan Hancock College Singers’ Director Ann Lucas.

She has been directing the college choir since 2006 and will be retiring shortly after the spring 2019 concert “That’s It” this May.

“While I am aware that this is my final performance with the choir, in a way I am not thinking about it at all,” said Lucas in a press release. “As the choir and I continue to rehearse and perfect our program, we are throwing ourselves full-tilt into the process. We care to the utmost that we do our best and we love to walk on stage and deliver. In this way, the concert is just like all the other ones we have given.”

The singers are offering a teaser concert Thursday, April 18, at 1:30 p.m. on the Commons outside of the Rabobank Student Center on Hancock’s Santa Maria campus.

The preview performance is free and open to the public.

The spring concert takes place Thursday, May 9 at 7 p.m. at the First United Methodist Church in Santa Maria.

Tickets be purchased at the door, in the fine arts office on the Santa Maria campus or from any choir member.

Admission is $10. There is no reserved seating.
