KSMU listeners first met Ryan Bogart last summer on “Arts News.” He and his wife Veronica (Ronnie) became the new directors of Messiah Project’s Credo Dance Academy at that time.  Today both Ryan and Ronnie were in-studio along with Messiah Project director Lindsey Robison to talk about a Christian-themed dance concert this weekend.

Messiah Project presents its 9th annual "Heritage of Hymns" concert featuring a community choir, community orchestra and the Springfield Boy Choir Saturday Oct. 15 at 7:00pm in the Evangel University Chapel Auditorium.  Sharon WIlkins is the choral director for the concert, with Larry Dissmore conducting the Messiah Project Orchestra.  Singers from various area churches and denominations join together in this concert to sing some of the greatest church music ever composed.
