Many hours of practice culminated Saturday evening at Blue River Bible Church as Charis Schneeberger performed her Senior Recital. The event was part of the requirements for Charis to earn her Bachelor of Music degree in Music Education. She sang in Italian, German, French, and English throughout the course of her program. Charis has been a student of Dr. Haekyung An during her years at Calvary. She is the daughter of Calvary alumni David and Kelly Schneeberger and the granddaughter of Bob “Coach” and Kathy Schneeberger. Charis plans to graduate in 2019.

Last Friday evening the Calvary Masterworks Chorus performed Elijah by Felix Mendelssohn. A large crowd of family and friends filled Blue River Bible Church to enjoy the fruit of many weeks of practice by the vocalists and instrumentalists. The chorus was comprised of Calvary students, faculty, staff, alumni, and singers from the local, Christian community. The oratorio featured 47 movements following Elijah’s story in I Kings and incorporating other scriptures as well. We were pleased to have Joshua Lawlor, David Adams, Un Chong Christopher, and Jacqueline Venable Simmons as soloists for the performance. Jeremy Schell, our Chorale Director, was the director and conductor of the chorus and orchestra.
