The Tabor College Concerto Bella Voce Women’s Choir is set to perform a home concert at 4:00 p.m. Sunday, April 6 at Parkview Mennonite Brethren Church located at 610 South Main in Hillsboro.

The group traveled to four states on their annual spring break tour and performed eight concerts with the theme “Lift Thine Eyes” March 16-23.

The choir is under the direction of Janie Brokenicky and accompanied by Jennifer Epp, who is a Tabor alumna from Hillsboro, Kan.

Brokenicky is in her second year as assistant professor of choral music at Tabor College. She is the founder of the Concerto Bella Voce Women’s Choir and teaches private voice, in addition to courses in music theory, sight singing and ear training.

Comprised of 19 women, the group is excited to share their musical talents and love of Jesus Christ with listeners.

“The theme is centered around the message in Psalm 121 and the program includes the piece ‘Lift Thine Eyes’ from Felix Mendelssohn’s oratorio, Elijah,” says Brokenicky.

“The program also features flute and percussion performed by six students within the group,” added Brokenicky.
