In the chorus

Kayla Ramos of Kannapolis has been named to Bob Jones University’s University Singers, BJU’s largest choral organization.

Ramos is a Freshman majoring in music.

All students at BJU are welcome to audition for choirs and are placed in a choral group according to their classification and abilities. Singers are re-auditioned periodically to determine proper placement.

The choral program at BJU is a developmental program comprised of seven graded choirs. Performances include concerts of standard choral literature, sacred service music, and the annual opera and oratorio performances.

Art exhibit

Elizabeth Weimer, a graphic design major at Bob Jones University, will be featured at the opening reception for “Command — Senior Graphic Design Exhibition” Friday, Dec. 6, from 7:30-9:30 p.m. in the Sargent Art Building on the BJU campus. Weimer is a resident of Salisbury. The exhibit will remain in place through Jan. 22.

The exhibition, produced entirely by the senior class, features examples from their senior portfolios and internships and is a culmination of their coursework. A highlight of the graphic design program, the show displays each student’s unique approach to high-level, visual problem solving. Approximately 140 works will be displayed accompanied by artist statements explaining the creative process.
