SARA GROVES IN CONCERT AT UNION COLLEGE

 

            LINCOLN–On Sunday, Nov. 3, Union College will host a concert by Christian recording artist and song writer Sara Groves.  The concert will take place at College View Church located at the corners of 48th and Prescott at 7:30 p.m.  The doors will open at 6:30 p.m.

            Musically, Groves has been described as being reminiscent of Shawn Colvin and Sarah McLachlan and has been compared to the late Christian artist Rich Mullins.

            Groves grew up in Springfield, Mo., where she worked as a Taco Bell cashier and attended Evangel University.  A 1994 graduate, Groves taught history and English at a public high school in Minnesota before becoming a full-time musician in the spring of 1998.

            Groves’ 1998 debut album Past the Wishing is known as one of Christian music’s best-selling, independent recordings of all time.  She has appeared on Billy Graham’s “Decision Today” radio program and has been featured in an article in CCM Magazine. Her song “Generations” has been as high as number three on the inspirational charts. Currently, she performs over 120 dates per year and has released a second album called Conversations.

            Tickets are available in advance at Family Christian bookstores for $15 or at the door for $17. Children 12 years and under are free.
