About 200 voices came together at Bluffton University Nov. 12 for the finale of both a gospel music concert and a weeklong, campus celebration of gospel titled "Blended Voices: Music and Worship in the Gospel Tradition." Participating choirs included the Bluffton University Gospel Choir, a 65-member group of community, as well as campus, representatives directed by Dr. Crystal Sellers, an assistant professor of music; three other campus choral groups; four choirs from area churches; and the Columbus, Ohio-based Raise Productions Choir, led by Dr. Raymond Wise. The guest musician for the week, Wise is a composer, arranger and gospel historian, as well as a minister in Columbus.
