1. Lee University Wind Ensemble last performance of the semester

On Tuesday, Nov. 22, Lee University’s Wind Ensemble will perform their last concert of the semester. 

Conducted by Dr. David Holsinger, the concert will feature original works and transcriptions beginning with a transcription of Franz Liszt’s “Hungarian March Attack” by Kenneth Singleton, and consist of “music that will remind you to buy a diamond for a Christmas gift,” said Holsinger.

The concert will be non-ticketed and free to everyone either in person or online through a livestream at 7:30 p.m. in the Conn Center. 

2. Qatar’s first-ever World Cup match ends in defeat

Qatar’s first-ever World Cup match against Ecuador ended in defeat on Sunday, Nov. 20. 

A host has not lost the opening match in 92 years. The 2-0 score came within the first 30 minutes of the opening ceremony. 

“Ecuador did take the lead, however, in the 16th minute when Valencia was tripped by Saad Alsheeb after rounding the goalkeeper, who was booked for the challenge,” reports NPR. “Valencia was nonchalant as he trotted up and converted the spot kick into the bottom corner.”

3. “Chrisley Knows Best” stars to be sentenced 

Todd and Julie Chrisley, known for their show “Chrisley Knows Best,” were found guilty of fraud in June and set to be sentenced on Monday, Nov. 21. 

The Chrisley’s were charged with bank fraud, tax evasion and conspiring to defraud the IRS.

The bank fraud scheme, was determined to receive between 22 years and 12 and one half years according to the government’s guidelines. Yet the Chrisley’s disagree with the government’s guidelines, Todd Chrisley’s lawyer wrote how they do not think the Chrisley’s should receive more than nine years. 

“The Chrisleys are unique given the varied and wide-ranging scope of their fraudulent conduct and the extent to which they engaged in fraud and obstructive behavior for a prolonged period of time,” prosecutors wrote.
