On Monday Oct. 15, the University Choir and Vox Royale performed various songs for an audience compromised of students, parents, and notable members of the staff and faculty.

The choir sang “Sorida”, “Be Thou My Vision”, “Joshua” and “A Clare Benediction.” The Voy Royale sang “And So It Goes” by Billy Joel. The Voy Royale Men’s Quartet sang “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” by Randy Newman.

The evening also featured various soloists. Jackie Jackson did a solo during “Sorida”, Allen Ramsey performed “Polonaise in G Minor” on the piano, and Jasmine Stacy sang “Lascia ch’io pianga.” Also featured during the performance of “Sorida” was a group of four students who played various percussion instruments to accompany the song.

At the end of the concert, the choir ended by celebrating the success of the evening. One of those students was freshman Emma Holley.

“I feel amazing,” said Holley. “The pieces were fabulous. I enjoy singing with this group. This is a great choir group that we have. It is filled with a bunch of loving, sweet and energetic people, and I am so happy to call them my family.”

Some of his hobbies include crosswords, watching Netflix, and spending time with friends. His passions include working with refugees and supporting his friends. He wanted to attend Johnson because of the belonging he felt when visiting, and the great ministry program. He appreciates the uncommon community and the support and love people give each other at Johnson. His favorite thing about the local area is getting to the top of a hike and looking out at the view. It reminds him that things in life may seem big and impossible to deal with, but in reality are quite small, and he serves a great God who will help him through them.
