Th rough intense rehearsal and performance, the chorale is motivated to prepare well and strive for excellence with a desire to make music that is an off ering to the Lord. Th e chorale functions in a way that seeks to represent the body of Christ. Its members strive to be Christ-like, witnessing to each other and those to whom they minister. Th e chorale is a mixed chorus of 60 men and wom- en dedicated to the performance of a wide variety of a cappella classics, as well as hymn arrangements and spirituals. Under the direction of Dr. Peterson, they are known throughout the United States and Europe for their high level of musical excellence. Members are selected through competitive auditions each academic year.
