Bluffton University Camerata Singers perform at Grace Gospel Church

Bluffton University’s Camerata Singers will perform at Grace Gospel Church, 327 N. Gilbert St., at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, April 19, as part of the worship service.  This is the home church of Camerata member, Ashley Musgrave.

The chamber choir was established in 1984 as an outgrowth of a larger mixed choir.  Camerata Singers maintains an active schedule of more than 20 annual performances on campus, in area churches and schools, and on tour. 

The choir tours domestically each year, plus includes international travel and study every three or four years. 

Camerata Singers is planning a three-week cross-cultural experience to Great Britain in May.

"Sing Ye Praises with Understanding” is the theme of the program, conducted by Dr. Mark J. Suderman, professor of music and director of choral activities at Bluffton.

While the first half of the program will feature traditional, sacred choral music, the second half will include music of more unique faith groups and styles: gospel music, spirituals, music from the Shaker and the Iona Communities, and texts by important spiritual leaders.
