New Song, now in its 37th year, consists of a group of students committed to spreading the Gospel through music and drama. New Song’s repertoire consists of a cappella psalms, as well as accompanied Contemporary Christian favorites.
The New Song 2013 members are: Justin Addicott, a junior music education major from Enon Valley, Pa.; Caleb Cress, a sophomore music education major from Ambridge, Pa.; David Doyle, a senior biblical languages and philosophy major from Pittsburgh, Pa.; Kenny Van Duzer, a junior general music major from Prince Frederick, Md.; Elizabeth Dykshoorn, a senior music education major from Bad Axe, Mich.; Elise Lundy, a senior vocal performance major from London, England; Jennifer McKissick, a senior biology major from Minneola, Kan.; Olivia Mitchell, a junior independent major from Johnstown, Pa.; and Amie Speers, a junior music education major from Hopewell, Pa.
“My favorite things about New Song is the vast scenery I get to see while touring, reminding me of God’s amazing power and creativity,” says Addicott, a returning member. “I also enjoy the many homes I get to stay in with kind families, superb home cooking and engaging fellowship.”
