The Peace concert of November 11, 2018 marks the first concert of the newly formed Eastman Chamber Choir, later called Exaudi. As part of the 30th year of the Eastman Choral Association, a new adult choir was formed to showcase some of the areas finest choral talent. Under the leadership of Meredith Hutchinson and Shannon Sawatzky, the EMCA has embarked on an ambitious concert season for the Steinbach area. The new chamber choir, under the direction of Dr. David Sawatzky, is merely one of the new initiatives. Further concerts include a performance of Handel’s Messiah in April, and a return of the Easter Sunrise Service performance. For more information, see the article in Steinbach’s Carillon.
