Camp Electric coming back to Cedarville

Cedarville University welcomes Camp Electric to its campus for the second year this July.

Camp Electric is an opportunity for young musicians to develop their skills and learn to serve God through music. Instructors from top Christian bands will provide students with tools and resources to help them progress toward a high level of musicianship and God-honoring ministry.

Each day, students will meet for morning worship, group classes and nightly concerts. In recent years, bands like Gungor and The Museum have led worship, and artists like TobyMac and Jamie Grace have performed.

Camp Electric is open to students ages 13-19. Reserve a spot by calling 800-755-0242 or register online at www.campelectric.com.

ASHLAND PLANS CHORAL CONCERT – The Ashland University Department of Music presents its final choral concert of the year featuring three vocal groups performing popular favorites from Gershwin to James Taylor and Stevie Wonder on April 29, at 4 p.m. at the Jack and Deb Miller Chapel. The concert, which features the Ashland University Chamber Singers and the Women’s Chorus, is free and open to the public.

Under the direction of Stephanie Sikora with assistance by pianist Holly Allan and a jazz combo with D R Haught, Ben Schnell and Aaron Hill, the Women’s Chorus will perform Pat Ballard’s 1954 Billboard chart hit “Mister Sandman,” Bobby Darin’s classic hit “Beyond the Sea” as arranged by Holly Allan, Rsephanye Powell’s spiritual “Still I Rise” and Ron Jeffers “I Have Had Singing.” The Women’s Chorus also will feature senior members Alaina Bosak, Helena Marshall, Laura Huntington and Lindsay Hartke on the Gershwin for Girls Medley.

The Chamber Singers, directed by Rowland Blackley, will present Gene Puerling’s arrangement of “A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square,” which was made famous by the Manhattan Transfer, James Taylor’s “Lonesome Road,” “Icarus” by Ralph Tower, and Ysaye Barnwell’s “Wanting Memories.”

The concert also will introduce the student-led a capella ensemble Surround Sound as they perform three popular songs, including Neil Diamond’s “I’m a Believer,” Stevie Wonder’s “Signed, Sealed, Delivered, I’m Yours,” and “This Love” as performed by Maroon 5.
