McKENZIE — There is immense vocal, instrumental and performing talent on Lee Street and Bethel Court. That’s where students at Bethel University’s Renaissance rehearse.
Bethel University’s Renaissance Choir closed out the school’s Homecoming with a concert at the First Cumberland Presbyterian Church on Sunday. The students showcased their phenomenal talents to an appreciative congregation.
In the past, I have told Matthew Holt, executive director of the Renaissance program, there is as much talent at Bethel as anywhere in the country.
During the pre-performance rehearsal Sunday, choir director Megan Allen told the students, “I love you.” She said choir members represent students throughout the country and the world.
Megan Allen is indicative of the leadership at the local university.
This week, Bethel is hosting the annual Boo Bash in downtown McKenzie on Thursday and on Saturday, a marching band competition at Wildcat Stadium. In the coming weeks, Bethel is performing Phantom of the Opera at The Dixie and the annual Renaissance Christmas on the Bethel campus.
The community is so blessed to have Bethel University.
