Orpheus Choir will perform at Fourth Presbyterian Church, Chicago, on Friday, March 21, 2014, as part of a special concert series. The concert begins at noon and concludes at 12:50 p.m. in the church sanctuary. Dr. Jeff Bell, music professor, conducts.
For 82 years, Orpheus Choir has been providing “A Ministry in Music,” blessing and inspiring audiences across the country and worldwide. One of the many musical ensembles in Olivet’s Department of Music
, this select 70-voice group of singers performs a repertoire of anthems, hymns, spirituals and contemporary compositions, representing different styles and periods of choral music. Dr. Bell
has served as conductor since 1999.
Olivet has long enjoyed a distinguished reputation for the quality of its music program and the professional preparation of its graduates. Students are challenged to use their musical gifts in a variety of professional settings, including concerts, worship services, clinics and camps.
Olivet's Department of Music is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music (NASM) since 1982. Dr. Don Reddick serves as department chair. The department exists to cultivate the musical skills of student scholars as an act of personal commitment to Christ, and to encourage a life of service to others. The educational thrust is threefold: to complement a broad liberal arts education; to provide the intensive professional training that aspiring musicians need; and to meet the musical needs of the University, community and the educational region it serves.
There is no admission charge for this concert. For more information, call 815-939-5110 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
