Musicians from Brewton-Parker College’s prestigious Division of Music, based in Mount Vernon, Ga., filled the world with song and praise with three separate international performance tours in England, Moldova and Russia this summer.
The BPC Chamber Choir, a 26-member choir comprised of students and two faculty members, performed five concerts in historic cathedrals and manors across the English countryside during their May tour. Senior Brejoya Perry, a church music major, summarized the experience as “one of a lifetime,” adding “one of the most exciting things as a musician was being able to sing in cathedrals of composers, performers and important figures we only study about through textbooks. To be able to stand, sing and especially conduct in the places where those important people roamed was absolutely overwhelming."
BPC’s Music Division chair and a fellow music professor were both privileged to be a part of the Sons of Jubal, a 114-member choir, on the “This is My Story, This is My Song” Russian trip in May to St. Petersburg and the Moscow areas. Dr. Glenn Eernisse, chair, and Dr. Ben Caston, assistant professor of music, said this trip’s theme and focus were evident in both the fellowship they shared with other Americans in the area– “who give all that they have in what they do” – and in the performances, which included a tour of more than 17 venues. The universal language of music surpassed the spoken language barriers, creating an “indeliable memory” for Dr. Eernisse. “In our travels, we found that the hymn, ‘How Great Thou Art’ is well-known in all cultures. I had the opportunity to lead the song as it was sung in three languages.”
Former long-time Music Division chair and current part-time consultant to the president for external relations, Hildegard Stanley, was a member of the Jubalheirs trip to Moldova in June. The trip included music concerts, medical care clinics and one-on-one visits with children and adults in locations such as a summer camp for orphans and a music conference Stanley helped lead Moldovian Christians at a seminary in Chrisinau, Moldova, Stanley said.
Brewton-Parker College is the only accredited, four-year Christian college in South Georgia.
