New Song A Cappella Singers Announce Local Tour Performance
(BEAVER FALLS, Pa.) – New Song, Geneva College psalm-singing choral ensemble, announces the next stop on its 41st annual summer tour of music ministry.
LOCATION: Grace Church Elizabethtown, 243 W. Dixie
DATE: July 12
TIME: 7:00 pm
SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS: local POC: Leigh Ann Pierce firstname.lastname@example.org
The tour takes the nine-member a cappella singing group from their home base in Western Pennsylvania across the Midwest, Northeast and into parts of Canada to proclaim the Gospel through music and drama. In its 40-year history, New Song has travelled throughout the United States and Canada, as well as travelling to China on two occasions. They have also released a number of albums of their inspired music.
Each year, New Song takes on new students, chosen based on their talents in music and drama, as well as their ability to articulate their Christian faith. Under the direction of Lindsay Shaffer, who is directing her third tour, New Song performs a variety of a cappella psalms, accompanied and unaccompanied hymns and contemporary Christian music. Students also perform drama in the middle of the program to the delight of audiences and to the glory of God.
Shaffer says, “Watching the students minister to people around the country is so rewarding.”
Beyond the rigorous musical training provided for New Song members, the tour presents a wonderful opportunity for students to share their faith with others and glorify God with their talents.
