Message to Chapel and Concert Choir Alumni:

Dear Berea Choir Alumnus,

Autumn greetings! As the new Berea College Concert Choir and Chamber Singers conductor, I am writing to invite you to the 33rd annual Alumni Chapel and Concert Choir Reunion during Homecoming Weekend on November 16th and 17th. It is a tremendous honor to carry on the work of Dr. Stephen Bolster and build on his legacy. Joining me in extending this invitation is Katie Basham (‘02) – we have teamed up to plan this event together to ensure that there will not only be meaningful music made, but time to reconnect, reminisce, and rekindle friendships.

Homecoming Choir 2019 Pieces

  1. Anthem – Craig Courtney’s “Time for Turning”
  2. Choral Benediction – James E. Moore’s “An Irish Blessing”

Scores will be provided but can also be downloaded here:

  1. “Time for Turning” score – view online only
  2. “An Irish Blessing” score – downloadable PDF

We would love to hear from you regardless of whether you can attend this year’s Chapel/Concert Choir reunion! Please complete and submit the Homecoming Choir 2019 registration form above before Monday, November 11th if possible.

Katie and I really look forward to meeting you next month, hearing about your time in Chapel/Concert Choir, and making music together as a multigenerational choir family on November 16th and 17th!
