Bethel Presents Choral Showcase

Bethel College will present its 16th annual end-of-the-year choral showcase featuring Music Ministry Teams, The Collegians, the Women’s Chorale, Voices of Triumph and the Concert Choir. The musical evening takes place Friday, April 15 at 7:30 p.m. in the Everest-Rohrer Chapel/Fine Arts Center – Auditorium.

Bob Ham is the director of the Concert Choir and Voices of Triumph, while Jill Hostetler is the director of the Music Ministry Teams, The Collegians and the Women’s Chorale. Each group will have the opportunity to sing several of their favorite pieces from the year.

 “The Choral Showcase is a celebration of the music and ministry of our choral ensembles. It is a chance for all our groups to hear each other and support each other as well as allow the audience to hear each group in one setting, as it is the only concert of the entire year where each group is featured,” says Ham. “My favorite part of the concert is celebrating the uniqueness of each group.”

Admission is free and open to the public. For more information, contact the Bethel College department of music at 574.257.3393.
