The Evangels, The Jordonaires, Higher Call -- just a few of the male quartets that were a part of college tradition since CHU. And in the early 60s, there was a Women's quartet, the Clarions.

At Reunion 2012, we'd like to hear our quartets again. If you were a member of any of the, plan to join us at the Reunion and sing in a men's ensemble.

Be sure to email us at so we can keep you updated on the music, practice times, etc.

Mrs. Harris's memories of this photo

"The Clarions: Lily Nighswonger, 1st soprano; Kay Donna Cooper, 2nd soprano; Mryna Snyder, 1st alto; Thelma Eldred, 2nd alto; Claire Cargill, pianist. In 1960 we travelled to Nevada; North Dakota; South Dakota representing the school. We were allowed to use the Harri's car during that time to travel to the campmeetings we were booked at."
