Lexi Walker to perform at BYU-Idaho in August
Teen singer Lexi Walker will perform at Brigham Young University-Idaho at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 3 in the Hart Auditorium in Rexburg.
“Lexi performed last year in our annual Christmas concert, but we wanted to bring her back for her very own show,” Don Sparhawk, coordinator of the Center Stage Performing Arts Series, said in a BYU-Idaho news release. “At just 16 years old, she has a remarkable voice and lovely stage presence.”
Walker’s career has included performances with Kristen Chenoweth, The Piano Guys, and Lindsey Stirling. She has opened shows for international tenor sensation Alfie Boe, country mega star Clint Black, and Tony-award winning vocalist Idina Menzel.
Tickets for this Center Stage performance are $12 for the general public and $6 for BYU-Idaho students. They are available at byui.edu/tickets or the BYU-Idaho Ticket Office.
