    Free Choral Concert by The Genevans Choir

    Free Choral Concert by The Genevans Choir

    The Genevans will be presenting a free choral concert at West Sayville Reformed Bible Church on Saturday, March 5, at 7:30 pm.

    THE GENEVANS, the student choir of Geneva College, is heir to a tradition of choral singing dating from the early years of the college over a century and a half ago. The Genevans perform a wide variety of redemptive and inspirational music that engages audiences while glorifying God and ministering with important spiritual truth.

    In this their 78th spring season, The Genevans will present a program entitled “Forget Not All His Benefits” at concerts in Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey. Their repertoire draws from a wide range of choral music from the Baroque era to the present, including pieces by living composers and compositions commissioned for the choir.

    The Genevans’ spring season begins with a preview concert at the Reformed Presbyterian Home in Pittsburgh on Wednesday, March 2nd, 2016, followed by a five-day bus tour of the Northeast from March 4th to 8th. Their season will culminate with their home concerts in Geneva College’s John White Chapel on Friday and Saturday, March 18th and 19th, and an additional performance in the majestic First Presbyterian Church of Pittsburgh on Saturday, April 2nd.

    David Kenneth Smith has served as the director of The Genevans since 2012. Having directed psalm singing in Geneva College’s Chapel program for six years, Dr. Smith now conducts The Genevans, teaches Voice, and arranges choral music. Dr. Smith earned his degrees in Voice Performance at Wheaton Conservatory and Indiana University, Bloomington. He lives near Cranberry Twp., Penn. with his wife, pianist Marie Libal-Smith.
