— LEWISBURG --  James Jordan, former choral director at Lewisburg Area High School, will lead the Westminster Choir College of Rider University in a concert tonight at 7:30 p.m. at Beaver Memorial United Methodist Church.

Westminster Schola Cantorum will perform a concert, "A New Song: Passages of Life,” as part of the choir’s spring tour.

The 81-voice Westminster Schola Cantorum is composed of students in their second year of study at the choir college. One of three curricular choirs that form the core of the Westminster experience, the ensemble prepares students for the Westminster Symphonic Choir, which performs and records with the world-famous orchestras. 

Jordan teaches undergraduate and graduate choral conducting and conducts the Westminster Williamson Voices. Additionally, he is founder and conductor of Anam Cara, a professional choral ensemble that has received critical acclaim for its recordings.

The concert is free but donations are welcome. For more information go to or call (570) 524-0809.
