On Friday, December 3, 2010, a 280-member chorus led by the noted John Hall performed a selection of religious and patriotic hymns as a prelude to the speech of Former President George W. Bush.  Following rehearsals that began in September of 2010, this ad hoc group of former chorus members of our Christian universities and other interested musicians, lovingly added their love in song from such numbers as “When I Survey the Wondrous Cross,”  “I Got Shoes,” “Ain’t a That Good News,” “Medley of World War II Songs, Mendelsshon’s “Psalm 100” and “The Lord Bless You and Keep You.”

A special seminar the following morning featured John Wiegand, editor of Praise for the Lord I and Dr. John Parker, author of Abide with Me–A Photographic Journey through Great British Hymns.

The next “I’ll Sing On” event is a performance at the Freed-Hardeman lectures on 10 February, 2011, at 8:30 pm in Loyd Auditorium.
