On Friday, December 7, the Calvary Music Department presented “An Old Time Family Christmas” concert. Faculty members, Dr. Haekyung An and Un Chong Christopher, started the program by singing “He Shall Feed His Flock” and “Come Unto Him” from Handel’s Messiah. Kristin Thurlby played her oboe as a guest artist, and several students played instrumental pieces as well. A few students performed solos, and lux voces, the new traveling music team, was also part of the program. The Chorale sang Candle Light Carol, Gesu Bambino, and Joy to the World. The Calvary Chamber Singers performed three songs on their own and then joined the Chorale and audience to close the concert with Christmas carols. The performance took place at Blue River Bible Church and was enjoyed by a large crowd.
Calvary University introduces their new traveling music group lux voces. The group consists of Calvary students and alumni.
This new group is made up of young, talented musicians, praising God through their music using vocals, guitars, drums and piano in their performances. Our goal is to serve Christian schools and churches by sharing the good news of Jesus Christ through music and testimonies.
The group will be available for Sunday morning church services and Christian school chapels as a way to introduce or familiarize Calvary University to families around the metro area with an interest in a local university.
The group debuted at the President’s Dinner in September to a great response. Would you like to have lux voces visit your church or school? They are now scheduling for the 2018-2019 season. The group has their own equipment, sound technician, and sponsors for each performance.
Last Thursday almost 200 people joined us for the annual President’s Dinner. The theme for the evening was “Celebrating God’s Blessing!” After dinner the program began with two songs by the Chorale.
The Calvary Chorale sang Kum Ba Yah.
Then we presented Hand in Hand Awards to Bill and Debi Keeney and Graham Union Church for their tremendous support of Calvary.

Following Dr. Cone we heard testimonies from three students as well as reports about God’s blessings in the Athletic Department, Colorado Innovation Center, and Kansas City campus buildings.

The evening concluded with the first performance of Calvary’s new music group, lux voces. We are thankful for each person who came to celebrate with us and for the students who served in various capacities throughout the event.
