High school students who sing in a Christian choir and wish to do so in college may want to consider enrolling at Cincinnati Christian University (CCU). According to the school, its chorus was invited to sing the National Anthem at a Cincinnati Reds game.
Brenda Lang, director of the Concert Choir, said that the mission of the group is "Training Thousands to Impact Millions for Christ." Furthermore, before singing in front of more than 17,000 fans, Lang made sure that the 41 students prayed before they performed.
"Although the song may be different from what we normally sing, our purpose is no different," she told the group, quoted by the school. "Our ministry as this choir is the same - to represent Christ."
After performing, the choir received compliments from the Reds' opponents, the Arizona Diamondbacks, who gave high-fives to each singer.
"It was actually meaningful singing the national anthem in front of all those people," said Phil Agepogu, choir member, according to CCU.
Individuals who wish to lead choirs may have excellent job prospects, as the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that overall employment of self-enrichment education teachers - such as those who instruct music classes - is expected to increase by 32 percent over the next several years.
