Ronnie Milsap ranks as the pre-eminent country soul singer of his generation. He also represents much more than any two-word definition can convey: a humble, overtly friendly fellow with a talent as vast and multi-dimensional as the American South. Milsap provided country music with one of its most important voices, as the genre was moving beyond its rural roots into the mainstream of modern entertainment. Country music couldn’t have found a man more suited to lead the charge. Steeped in the mountain music of the North Carolina hills and schooled in classical piano, Milsap early in life found inspiration in a wide variety of music. Even as he mastered Beethoven and Mozart, his heart belonged to hardcore country and rhythm-and-blues -- music he heard beamed from powerful radio stations located in Nashville. Those earthy sounds about life and love provided a young, impoverished blind boy with a connection to a world beyond the harsh reality of his daily existence.

The Brenneman Missionary Church in Goshen, IN, was established in 1878 and the choir has been in existence from the beginning. Its membership consists solely of volunteers, ordinary people who have an extraordinary passion for singing.This is evident in rehearsals and when they sing and worship in our services. They are people who come from many generations and all walks of life and back grounds for the purpose of serving God through music and community outreach. In addition to being involved in our weekly services, they also perform seasonal Cantatas and musicals.Their repertoire covers a wide variety of styles from Handel to Vince Guaraldi! In December 2014 and 2015 they participated in the Festival Choir with the South Bend Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Maestro Tsung Yeh.
Kelli Armentrout’s interest in music began as a little girl, listening to her mother and sister’s sing. She received her Music Education degree from Olivet Nazarene University in Bourbonnais, Illinois and has studied voice and Education at Indiana University at South Bend, Indiana. She is a 25 year veteran of the teaching and choral directing profession. Since 2007, she has been the Worship Arts Director at Brenneman Missionary Church in Goshen, Indiana. Ms. Armentrout has been active in her community as vocal director for the Summerfly Community Youth and Clay High School of Fine Arts productions in South Bend, performances at South Bend Civic Theater, and conducting choral workshops. As a professional soloist she has been featured with Michiana area ensembles such as, Truth in Jazz, Elkhart Municipal Concert Band, South Bend Symphony Orchestra and the IUSB Jazz Ensemble and is a member of the St. Joseph Valley Camerata Singers.
