Audrey Boyers, Archbold, is a member of the Taylor Sounds vocal ensemble and Concert Chorale for the 2010-2011 season at Taylor University, Upland, Ind.
A 2008 Archbold High School graduate, she is the daughter of Matt and Lanita.
The Taylor Sounds is a select group of singers representing a variety of academic disciplines.
The group’s repertoire consists of literature that is appropriate for a small ensemble consisting of music from the entire spectrum of sacred choral works, secular madrigals, and vocal jazz.
The group performs regularly in chapel services on campus, special holiday celebrations, and campus events.
In recent years the ensemble has traveled to Israel and Jordan; Nassau, Bahamas; Ireland, and throughout the United States.
In March 2011 they will travel to and perform in Cuenca, Ecuador.
Membership in the chorale is open to all TU students on an audition basis.
Repertoire is selected from the spectrum of sacred choral works, from Renaissance to contemporary periods, and includes pieces such as Mozart’s Coronation Mass, Chichester Psalms by Bernstein, Faure’s Requiem, Messiah by Handel, and Brahms’ A German Requiem.
The chorale performs on campus, appears in concerts with the Fort Wayne, Ind., and Marion, Ind., Philharmonic Orchestras, and tours throughout the United States and beyond.
International tour destinations have included Great Britain, Austria, Italy, Germany, Scandinavia, Russia and Greece.
