Phil Maxwell talks with Sean Crawford on WUIS' Illinois Edition

Under the direction of Dr. Brad Holmes, the nationally recognized choir travels across the country and has performed abroad. 

But central Illinois is home base.  

"They've gone to the American Choral Directors Association annual meeting again and again.  Every time they do, they get standing ovations for this choir from a relatively small university," Phil Maxwell said.  Maxwell is choir director at the church. 

He says the performance is always well attended, so come early to get a seat.  The event is free.  It starts at 2:30 p.m.
