Concert Choir to Tour Michigan

The Bethel College Concert Tour Choir will tour churches in Michigan from May 2 through May 8. Directed by Robert N. Ham and accompanied by Marilynn Ham, the choir will sing pieces ranging in style from Renaissance to Contemporary, from art songs to gospel. The theme of this year’s program is “Your Very Presence.”
