The Baylor University Men’s Choir will stream its first concert of the fall 2020 semester on Thursday, November 5, beginning at 7:00 p.m. This remarkable 76-member choral ensemble is conducted by C.

The choir’s graduate conductor is Will McLean, a Choral Conducting student from Duluth, Minnesota, and the accompanist is Chad Houk, a doctoral student in Church Music from Waco.
Opening the concert will be “Hakuna Mungu Kama Wewe” (“There Is No Other God Like Jesus”), a worship song from Kenya that was arranged by former choir member Will McKee.
Next, the Men’s Choir will sing Elaine Hagenberg’s setting of “I Will Be a Child of Peace,” followed by graduate conductor Will McLean’s arrangement of “Lift Every Voice and Sing.”
Also to be heard are “No Color” by composers Stacey V. Gibbs and Shawn Kirchner and Will McLean’s arrangement of an African prayer for peace, “Ukuthula.”
Then the choir will perform “Yonder Come Day,” as arranged by Paul John Rudoi, and Reginald Unterseher’s “The Steady Light.”
The program will close with “I’ll Be on My Way” by Shawn Kirchner.
