“To our great God, ruler of everything and lover of each one – Thank you for guiding me through all the twists, turns, bumps, and potholes on my long journey through college.” ~ Emily Wirth
Emily (Heitz) Wirth
Those words were the first part of the acknowledgments in the program for Emily Wirth’s Senior Recital on Sunday. During her long, winding path to graduation, Emily has studied under Paul Vander Mey, Cheryl Clark, Dr. Haekyung An, and Dr. Tom Stolberg. Completing her Senior Recital is another step on the path, and it is a good example of perseverance, especially for those who may have given up on their dreams of finishing college. Emily was accompanied on the piano by Christopher Stolberg, and she sang pieces by Handel, Scarlatti, and Schubert among others. She plans to use her degree by teaching voice and piano lessons, performing, and composing music. To God be the glory for how He has brought Emily to this place!
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.

She currently enjoys singing ALL the time, teaching kids to swim, taking classes, and hanging out with friends and family.
Singing since she could talk, Charis has had many opportunities to shape her gift throughout junior high and high school in choirs and vocal ensembles, as well as, the Calvary Choral her first two years as a student. She was also a part of Calvary University’s traveling ensemble, Evidence, for two years. She is so thankful for the progress she has made at Calvary so far and hopes to continue to grow to be the very best she can be for those around her now and her students in the future.
Each Music Major has to perform a final recital as part of their degree requirements; however, even though it is required, it is one of the more fun things Music Seniors get to do for their degree process. Come hear Charis as she sings a selection of Italian, French, and German composers as well as an American favorite composer. These selections will delight and entertain you, as well as, give you insight as to the hard work and talent of the music program here at Calvary. University.
