Published: Apr 11, 2018

The Taylor University Chorale presents Love in Bloom, a free spring concert in the Euler Science Center Atrium on Sunday, April 22, at 7:30 pm. This will be the 22nd Spring Concert under the direction of Dr. JoAnn Rediger, who began serving as Taylor's Director of Choral Activities in 1996.

The Chorale will be joined by the Taylor Sounds Chamber Ensemble, Taylor University String Quartet, clarinetists Dr. Chris Bade and Stephen Christophersen, violinist Hasun Yoo, and flutist Claira Loisch. A faculty and student men’s choir with Assistant Conductor Howard Lee and accompanist Sheila Todd along with The Woodlan High School Women’s Choir from Woodburn, Indiana, directed by TU alumnus Kyle Romine.

Highlights include:

  • Gospel: My God is a Rock, I’ll Be On My Way, and Ain’t No Grave Can Hold My Body Down
  • Contemporary: What a Wonderful World, I Love You, and The Mermaid’s Lament
  • Folk: How Can I Keep From Singing and Shenandoah
  • Sacred: Praise To The Lord, Psalm 23, and Abide With Me
  • Twentieth Century: Gracious Spirit, Holy Ghost and The Ground

The music is amplified by the four-story high ceiling in the Euler Atrium, which creates a cathedral-like resonance unlike anything in the surrounding area. Free parking is available nearby on the east side of Taylor’s campus. Early arrival is suggested given limited seating for this end-of-the-year event.
