Praise Choir, Dr. Philip Camp, Director
The Praise Choir consists of about 50 students and carries on the ministry tradition of the A Cappella and Meistersinger Choruses from the past. Singing mostly for church related outreach events and programs, the choir often performs an a cappella 'sermon-in-song' incorporating Christian Contemporary songs, Classical choral anthems, modern arrangements of well-known hymns, and African-American spirituals, interwoven with scripture readings and visuals that present the message of the Gospel of Christ. Rehearsal times are M-F 11:40-12:30. Tours include occasional weekend trips during the semester, an 8-10 day tour during the Christmas break, and a major mission trip overseas after the spring semester of odd-numbered years. Recent mission trips include Eastern Europe (2007 and 2009), Eastern Australia (2005 and 2001), Ireland (2003), Mexico (2000), and the Philippine Islands (1998).
Chamber Singers, Dr. Philip Camp, Director
The LCU Chamber Singers is an ensemble of 16-20 voices. The group performs a wide variety of literature employing a variety of instrumental accompaniments in both on and off campus venues, programming music from the Renaissance, Baroque, Classic, and Romantic periods. Contemporary music includes anthems, secular choral pieces, spirituals, and Jazz arrangements.
