Join us Friday, April 20, at 8 p.m. EDT for the first-ever live webcast of the Chorale, BJU’s premier choir. The 52-voice choir under the direction of Warren Cook will perform a concert titled O Be Joyful.
The program will feature Mack Wilberg’s Jubilate Deo and Bob Chilcott’s Jubilate, with Foundation Brass, piano, organ and percussion accompaniment.
The highlight of the evening will be Dan Forrest’s new composition A Bronze Triptych, a setting of a new Charles Anthony Silvestri text. The poem traces the journey of metal mined from the earth, forged into instruments of war, but recast into bronze bells used in celebrations of joy, anticipating the day “when wars will cease, and on earth, peace everlasting.” This performance will be accompanied by Dan Forrest, Jean Cook and the BJU Bell Choir.
If you’d like to attend the concert on campus, free tickets are available at Programs & Productions and in the Gustafson Fine Arts Center Music Library. Two on-campus performances (6:30 and 8 p.m.) will be held in War Memorial Chapel.
