Members of the Millikin University Choir joined the Heart and Soul choir for adults with special needs for a performance on April 26 at Central Christian Church in Decatur, Ill.
The combined performance developed from a longstanding connection between Heart and Soul and Millikin student Emily Knezz, a senior from Pleasant Prairie, Wis. Heart and Soul was started by Don Martin, minister of music at Central Christian Church, in the fall of 2012.
The flagship of the Millikin choral fleet, the University Choir features 45 upper-class students from a variety of majors. In recent years, the choir has also toured internationally to Ireland, Scotland, England, China, Taiwan, Haiti, Puerto Rico, and the Dominican Republic. The Millikin University Choir has gained national recognition, due in part to six invitations to perform at national and regional conferences of the American Choral Directors Association (ACDA). The Millikin University Choir is under the direction of Dr. Brad Holmes, Millikin professor of music and director of choral activities.
