Milligan University
In celebration of Milligan University’s Hymn Festival this weekend, Milligan’s area of music will be joined by local church choirs and high schoolers for “How Great Thou Art,” a concert celebrating various favorite hymns of the past and present on Saturday, Feb. 3, at 7:30 p.m. in the Mary B. Martin Auditorium in Seeger Chapel.
The concert will feature hymns such as “Then Sings My Soul (How Great Thou Art),” “Amazing Grace,” “What a Friend We Have in Jesus” and “The Old Rugged Cross.” The concert will also feature hymns written by Mary Louise Bringle, as well as one hymn written by Milligan alumna Dr. Barbara Hamm (’67). Hamm’s hymn was written in response to Bringle’s address to the Hymn Society Annual Conference in Dallas, Texas, in 2019.
The concert features performances by the Milligan Orchestra, directed by Dr. Kellie Brown; the Milligan Concert Choir and Heritage, both directed by Dr. Noah DeLong; guest organists Robert J. Greene Jr. from First Presbyterian Church in Bristol, Tenn., and Nick Andrews from St. John’s Episcopal Church in Johnson City; and a festival choir.
The festival choir will be comprised of singers from David Crockett High School, Daniel Boone High School, Mountain View Baptist Church, First Presbyterian Church in Bristol, Westminster Presbyterian Church in Johnson City, Grandview Christian Church and First Broad Street United Methodist Church.
The public is invited.
