When NNU lights the candles on its Centennial Celebration during Homecoming & Family Weekend, there will be music. It may not be the angelic voices heard by Isaiah, but voices heard by churches, schools and gatherings all across the Northwest will sing once more at the Radio Hour and Gospel Sing on Nov. 10 at 7:30 pm, in NNU’s Brandt Center, 707 Fern St. in Nampa.

For nearly 90 years, members of the NNU student body formed teams that brought music performances, comedy and testimonies to any gathering that would give them a stage. As close as the nearest church or as far as summer camps in Minn., groups with names like “The Melodaries”, “The Ambassadors”, “Victory Vocalettes” and currently “Covenant” have traveled a combined one million miles in cars and cramped 15 passenger vans.

NNU is inviting any of the +800 individuals who traveled for NNU to sing once more on Nov. 10 during the Centennial Kickoff. Dr. Barry Swanson, Director of the Department of Music, is excited about combining former travel group members with the current music students for a night of music through the decades. Already, 100 alumni are signed up and practicing the music that will be performed. Practice materials will be mailed to you when you sign up through the Homecoming & Family Weekend website.

Tickets are $6 for adults, $5 for seniors and $4 for those 18 and under. Purchase your tickets for this and all other Homecoming & Family Weekend events online at www.nnu.edu/homecoming or call (208)467-8841.
