Dan and Ginger Pitchers leave The Lesters; Lesters to become male trio
The Lesters announced this afternoon that Dan and Ginger Pitchers will be leaving the group. The husband-wife team will be coming off the road because Dan has accepted the senior pastorate of First Baptist Church in Annapolis, Missouri. Ginger, who sang alto, will stay on board until the Lesters can find a replacement.
Brian Lester, a third-generation Lesters member, and his son Jonathan, a fourth-generation Lester, plan to carry on the group as a male trio. This will be the first time in the Lesters’ history that they are not a mixed group. They are presently seeking a third male vocalist, commenting: “This is a huge decision for the family, but one that must be made for the betterment of this music ministry.”
