Centenary College Choir
Since 1941, the Centenary College Choir has performed throughout the world: singing for front-line troops in Korea, many American and European heads of state, NATO and American armed forces worldwide, ten international conventions of Lions International, three times for the General Conference of the United Methodist Church, the Council of Bishops, and two lengthy engagements at New York's Radio City Music Hall.
The choir is a unique collegiate choral group, singing a varied repertory including both sacred and secular music, from Bach to Broadway, folk to contemporary, and opera to oratorio. There is always something for everyone at a Centenary College Choir concert.
Centenary Choir to perform Cross Bayou Chapel benefit concert January 19
The Centenary College Choir will perform a benefit concert in the new Cross Bayou Chapel on the grounds of Camp Bethany, south of Greenwood, LA on January 19. This concert is sponsored by Cross Bayou Chapel and Conference Center, Inc., which recently completed construction of a chapel at Camp Bethany. The camp has been in existence since the 1980s, but has never had a chapel among its facilities. Charlie Park, vice president of Cross Bayou Chapel and Conference Center, reports that more than $650,000 has been raised from donations and pledges from Emmaus community members and various fundraising efforts and gifts over the last four years to build the chapel, and the Chapel is close to being paid for. This will be the second benefit concert the Choir has performed for the Chapel.
If you go: Cross Bayou Chapel at Camp Bethany, Highway 79, south of Greenwood, LA. Admission: $25. Tickets are available by emailing Charlie Park at email@example.com or by calling 318-539-9378, 318-578-2811 or 318-797-3240.
