Brewton-Parker College Choir and Concert Choir made its Carnegie Hall debut in New York City Sunday, June 27, and it was in large part made possible by these key individuals.

Dr. David R. Smith, BPC president, pictured above at left, stands with former BPC piano professor (1977-1978) Norman Dunfee, right. Dunfee is the President and Executive Director of MidAmerica Productions, the production house who coordinated the June 27 performance of the BPC Choir prelude concert and the John Rutter Requiem, performed by the New England Symphonic Ensemble and accompanied by 12 different choirs around the country, including the BPC Concert Choir, Choral Society and the Palmetto Voices, all under the direction of Dr. Sonja Sepulveda. Dr. Sepulveda, left front, and former BPC Music Division Chair, Hildegard Stanley, right front, have maintained contact with Dunfee – Stanley as she hired him in 1977, and Dr. Sepulveda, as she has performed at Carnegie previously when she was a choral director at Sumter High School (S.C.).

A full story on Brewton-Parker College’s Carnegie Hall debut will follow next week, and will be available on the college’s News and Info pages at www.bpc.edu. Brewton-Parker College is the only accredited four-year Christian college in south Georgia.
