Renaissance Choir Welcome

Welcome to the web site of the Bethel University Renaissance Choir. Renaissance, Bethel’s upbeat, entertaining choir has thrilled audiences near and far. The group performs a wide range of musical styles -- bluegrass to jazz, show tunes to "doo-wop" and the best-loved songs of faith, both traditional and contemporary.

The Renissance Choir  builds on Bethel's rich performance tradition to extend the reputation and the reach of the university. From stages, platforms, and pulpits – large and small – Renaissance shows the world that Bethel University, and her students, are among the best in the nation.

Renaissance is a ministry. The group's shows inspire those to praise God and to learn about Bethel University and its role as a Christian school affiliated with the Cumberland Presbyterian Church. It is also a ministry to the students who take part in Renaissance. By providing substantial scholarship money to those participating, Renaissance gives many students who might not otherwise be able to attend, the chance to go to college in a Christian environment. At Bethel, we support performing arts the same way we support athletics – that’s unusual, but Bethel is an unusual place!

Renaissance members will be quick to tell you the results are worth the hard work. Interesting travel, strong friendships, personal and professional growth and the satisfaction of a job well-done comprise the Renaissance experience.

We hope you enjoy your visit to our web site and hope to see you at a concert soon!
