Bethel College's Voices of Triumph and The Collegians in Concert

Bethel College's Voices of Triumph, an a cappella singing group, and The Collegians, Bethel's dynamic show ensemble, will perform Friday, February 9, 2007, at 7:30 p.m. in the Everest-Rohrer Chapel/Fine Arts Center Auditorium. This is a free concert open to the public.

The Voices of Triumph of Bethel College, Mishawaka, Ind., is an a cappella ensemble that sings spirituals, vocal jazz, hymns, madrigals, 20th century art songs, folk songs, Broadway show tunes and pop classics. The Voices of Triumph was founded in 1996 by its director, Robert Ham, to give outstanding musicians an opportunity to use their abilities in a challenging small group format. Currently 10 members strong, this group has earned a reputation for excellence in performance. In 2006 their first CD, "Anchored," was released.

The Collegians have been singing and dancing for Michiana audiences since 1994. Ranging in styles from show tunes to jazz, gospel to swing, The Collegians keep an active schedule performing for service organizations, retirement communities, churches, and private parties. Each spring, The Collegians team up with Voices of Triumph to present a full concert on campus. Jill Hostetler is the music director of this ensemble and Dr. Carolynn Hine-Johnson is the choreographer.
