In the spirit of Bethel College’s long-standing tradition of musical excellence, our annual Masterworks Concert showcases the talent of Bethel students and alumni.
In addition to an unforgettable musical performance, the concert includes the awarding of the Erwin C. and Verna Kaufman Goering Music Award.
The family of Verna Kaufman Goering, Moundridge, and the late Erwin C. Goering established the music award to honor a Bethel music alumnus of outstanding character for distinguished achievement and recognition in music.
Both Verna and Erwin Goering were active in music activities while they were students at Bethel. Verna continued to serve periodically on the music faculty as an accompanist and piano teacher.
