Chi Rho releases new CD at 15th annual concert
March 23, 2007
Wake Forest University’s student a cappella group Chi Rho will hold its 15th annual Big Concert at 8 p.m. April 21 in Wait Chapel. The concert, which is free and open to the public, will feature the release of the group’s 8th CD, “Here is What I Know Now.”
Chi Rho is a Christian men’s a cappella ensemble that is well known on campus and throughout the Triad for its tight harmonies and powerful lyrics, songs and testimonies. Last year’s Big Concert drew a crowd of more than 1,200. At the concert, the group will perform both old and new songs and will incorporate skits, talks and other inspirational entertainment.
Chi Rho was founded in 1991 by two Wake Forest students who wanted to create a campus-based music ministry. The group derives their name from the first two letters in the Greek spelling of the word “Christ.”
Over the years, Chi Rho has traveled locally and nationally, performing at events for churches, schools and organizations, including The White House, Habitat for Humanity, Major League Baseball games and The National Cathedral. In May, the group will perform internationally for the first time at a concert in Taize, France.
