MOUNT VERNON—Sweet voices mixed together to sing praises to God during the first half of the traditional Brewton-Parker fall concert. Faculty, students, and friends from the community crowded into Gilder Recital Hall on Tuesday, Dec. 3 to enjoy the free music provided by three groups associated with BPC: Voices of Truth, the BPC Community Wind Ensemble, and the Concert Choir.

Dr. Mike Simoneaux opened up the service. Voices of Truth, directed by BPC Music Professor Dr. David Wilson, sang modern praise songs such as “10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord).” Voices of Truth was represented by: Elizabeth Jones, Michael Mathews, Elizabeth Vetter, Jeffrey Covington, Olivia Brantley, Bryan Mauldin, and Suzanna Moye.
