As a choral conductor, I find it helpful to see programs that other conductors have assembled. It gives me ideas for how to structure a program and helps me find new choral sheet music. So here’s the latest program that I put together for the Elnora Bible Institute Choir.

Since this is my last time to lead the EBI choir, I tried to compile a program of favorite songs from previous years and songs that I thought could become new favorites for the students. Did I succeed? You decide.

The choir plans to give programs in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, and Tennessee on its tour starting this Wednesday, May 1, 2019, so if you’re in the area, stop by and listen. And be sure to say “hi” afterward. See the choir’s itinerary on Facebook.
