Marian University's Sacred Choir Shares Faith Through Music - 10/5/2012

Sacred Choir

Marian University’s Sacred Choir heads to Oldenburg, Indiana and Fort Wright, Kentucky this weekend for their annual fall tour. Along the way, they will be stopping to meet and work with high school choirs, building relationships through music.
 
Clare Bain, director of music ministry, says she organizes the tour to give students the opportunity to express their faith through music and connect with high school students who might be interested in coming to Marian University. 
 
Before leaving Indianapolis, the Sacred Choir will stop at Roncalli High School to work with their show choir. Next, they will spend two nights in Oldenburg, Indiana, where they will share meals, mass, and music with the Sisters of St. Francis, Oldenburg, Indiana and the students at Oldenburg Academy. On Sunday, October 7, they will give a concert at the Oldenburg Motherhouse Chapel.
 
“This is a great experience for our students. They have the opportunity to connect with Marian University’s roots,” Bain said. “It’s all about sharing faith, building a community, and giving back to the Sisters. The students aren’t just performing, they’re being enriched.”
 
On Saturday, October 6, the choir will give a concert with Bobby Fisher, a well-known and talented Catholic composer, at St. Agnes Catholic Church in Fort Wright, Kentucky. During concerts and performances, the Sacred Choir will give away free copies of its 75th anniversary CD, “In the Arms of Jesus.”
 
Marian University’s Sacred Choir is an auditioned choir that performs at masses and special concerts, spreading their faith through music.
