Vocal Authority Welcome

Welcome to the web site of VOCAL AUTHORITY, a part of Bethel University's Renaissance program. This upbeat, entertaining group of sixteen vocalists also features a complete rhythm section of student musicians. The group has thrilled audiences near and far. They perform a wide range of musical styles including the best-loved songs of faith, both traditional and contemporary.

VOCAL AUTHORITY 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 – VOCAL AUTHORITY shows the world that Bethel University, and her students, are among the best in the nation.

VOCAL AUTHORITY 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. By providing substantial scholarship money to those participating, Bethel's Renaissance program 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!

The members of VOCAL AUTHORITY 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.

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