Messiah Project is recruiting singers for a new women's chorale to perform concerts in April. Rehearsals begin Monday, March 20.

Messiah Project is a Christian performing arts company based in Springfield since 1991. This spring, they're forming a women's vocal ensemble to put on a pair of special concerts.

The Messiah Project Women's Chorale will perform their concert, titled "Awake My Soul and Sing!", on Saturday, April 29 at All Saints Anglican Church, 2751 E. Galloway St. in Springfield.

Rehearsals begin Monday, March 20, from 6 to 8 p.m. in the All Saints church sanctuary.

Dr. Heather Nelson, a Messiah Project singer and choral director, joined us on KSMU's "Arts News" — along with Messiah Project founder and managing director Lindsey Robison — to recruit women in the Ozarks who might like to join the new Messiah Project Women's Chorale for these concerts.

Randy Stewart joined the full-time KSMU staff in June 1978 after working part-time as a student announcer/producer for two years. His job has evolved from Music Director in the early days to encompassing production of a wide range of arts-related programming and features for KSMU, including the online and Friday morning Arts News. Stewart assists volunteer producers John Darkhorse (Route 66 Blues Express), Lee Worman (The Gold Ring), and Emily Higgins (The Mulberry Tree) with the production of their programs. He's also become the de facto "Voice of KSMU" in recent years due to the many hours per day he’s heard doing local station breaks. Stewart’s record of service on behalf of the Springfield arts community earned him the Springfield Regional Arts Council's Ozzie Award in 2006.
