The Bob Jones University music faculty has named Abigail Brown of Suffolk to the University’s Collegiate Choir.

Brown is a sophomore majoring in history.

The Collegiate Choir is part of BJU’s graded choir program and is comprised of mostly sophomores. Auditions for the group are held at the beginning of each semester. At the end of the academic year, the singers audition for either the Concert Choir or the University Chorale, which are both comprised of upperclassmen and graduate students.
