Choir Program

Dec 08, 2019

The Faith Builders Chorale, joined by the local community choir, will present the “A Cappella Christmas Cantata.”

We anticipate sharing this special piece, composed by Dr. Larry Nickel, at our annual Christmas concert on December 8, 2019, at 4:00 PM.

All are welcome to attend!

In the experience of beauty and worship, we give expression to many of our deepest emotions and desires, allowing the truth of God’s Word and the reality of His Presence to minister to us.

We commissioned Larry in 2015 to compose the music for this cantata and performed it then. We are excited to present it again! The Institute choir will sing a short set of other Christmas music before being joined by the community choir to sing the cantata.

We invite you to join us for this special event!

The purposes of FB's choral program are as follows:

  1. Offer programs of musical excellence to FB students and to the broader community, programs that demonstrate the potential of choral music to portray artistry and beauty,
  2. Provide and promote choral music to FB students and chorale members, to the Mennonite church, and to the broader culture,
  3. Provide choral worship experiences that glorify God, that meet spiritual needs, that celebrate and express the Christian faith, and that cultivate the common bonds of those who share Christian beliefs and traditions, and
  4. Provide ministry experiences through choral music to Mennonite churches, other Christian churches, and the broader culture and world.

  1. Summer Term program
