A Cappella Choir to perform

for Warsaw’s Rodeheaver Series


The Rodeheaver Series for the Performing Arts will present the A Cappella Choir of Manchester College in concert at the First United Methodist Church of Warsaw at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 25.

The concert is free. The church is in downtown Warsaw, at 179 South Indiana St.

The A Cappella Choir is an auditioned ensemble of more than 50 students of a variety of majors, including music, peace studies, education, the sciences, accounting, athletic training, history, religion and communication. 

Under the baton of Dr. Debra Lynn, associate professor of music, the repertoire of accompanied and unaccompanied choral literature spans all style periods, including Gregorian chant, opera choruses and folk song arrangements.

The choir and choir alumni will perform in residence at Carnegie Hall this May – an encore of their spring 2001 visit to the acclaimed New York City concert venue. The A Cappella Choir also has toured Italy, performing at the Vatican, St. Mark's Basilica and St. Francis of Assisi.

The Rodeheaver Series for the Performing Arts was established in 1990 to support and foster performing arts and artists in a manner that brings glory to God.  The Series has sponsored more than 55 concerts, recitals and theatrical presentations.
