Henry Waters

As Henry Waters begins his tenure as Bethel's director of choral music, one of his first steps has been to revive some old choir traditions.

This year, in addition to the Concert Choir, Waters is leading a Chamber Choir and a Chapel Choir.

“Both of these are still in the Bethel catalog,” he says, “but it’s been [decades] since they existed.”

However, while the Chapel Choir was once a choir that sang in chapel services during the school year, the revived name is being applied to what was previously called the Women’s Chorus.

Karen Robu

Karen Robu's original play “Suffering Church” will be staged Monday, April 11, at 7 p.m. in Krehbiel Auditorium in Luyken Fine Arts Center.

Most people who recognize Robu’s name do so because she has been a fixture in Wichita theater for almost 30 years.

But Robu is also a full-time associate minister for Plymouth Congregational Church in Wichita and part-time assistant professor of communication arts and director of theater at Bethel College, who just completed a Doctor of Ministry degree at Phillips Theological Seminary in Tulsa, Okla.
