Alumni Choir Reunion and Concert
Come sing with us on Saturday, Oct. 25!
Bob Ham just finished his 25th year of teaching at Bethel College and this fall we are planning a “25 Years of Bethel Choir” celebration and performance. We would like to invite you to join us on the platform that night for this special concert and for your family and friends to attend!
This free concert will be Saturday, Oct. 25 at 7:30 p.m. in the Everest-Rohrer Chapel/Fine Arts Center Auditorium and will take place during Alumni Weekend. Bob will direct the choir and accompanist Marilynn Ham, along with former accompanist Rob Rhein, will accompany the choir.
The concert will feature performances by the current Bethel Voices Of Triumph and Concert Choir, as well as solos or a duet by Marilynn and Rob. It will culminate with the alumni choir (a combined choir of alumni and current students) performing four numbers and ending with the Hallelujah Chorus from Messiah.
This is your opportunity to perform with your friends and to be part of this choral celebration with Bob, Marilynn and Rob!
