The Bethel College Women’s Chorus comprises dedicated singers from across the Bethel College campus.
This chorus contains students from freshman to senior and all singers are welcome without audition. A majority of singers come from the sophomore and freshman class, with juniors and seniors providing leadership as assistant conductors, section leaders and choir managers. These liberal arts oriented students engage the best literature for women’s chorus and take pride in singing as strong women in a world where the gifts of women are not always recognized.
In addition to their performances each semester, these singers combine with the Bethel College Concert Choir, Men’s Ensemble and Oratorio Chorus for an annual spring masterworks concert with the Newton Mid-Kansas Symphony Orchestra. With that orchestra, they have performed Orff’s Carmina Burana, Mozart’s Requiem, Brahms’ Requiem and Haydn’s Creation.
The Bethel College Women’s Chorus was honored to be invited to the 2013 Kansas Music Educators Association (KMEA) annual convention, which represents the best choral ensembles from across the state of Kansas.
