“The audience will get the chance to hear both sacred and secular numbers – a wide variety,” said Dr. Paul Etter, GWU director of choral activities and conductor of church music.  “The Handbells group will be performing some challenging pieces, while the chorale and choir will sing everything from a jazz piece to big band numbers.”

The concert also gives the choir the chance to prepare for an exciting future event.
