The Chorale's purpose is to preserve and promote great sacred choral music in the Evangelical church by presenting top-notch performances of the very best in sacred choral music. The Chorale has performed at Bethel University's Benson Great Hall and in more than 50 area churches from a variety of denominations. The Chorale's repertoire is varied and consists of traditional choral anthems, spirituals, hymn arrangements and major sacred choral works including Daniel Pinkham's "Christmas Cantata", Edvard Grieg's "Four Psalms", various J. S.
