Contemporary Christian Concert at HWS

Christian band Isaiah Six will perform in Albright Auditorium on their College Revolution tour
(Feb. 28, 2005) GENEVA, N.Y.–Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship on the Hobart and William Smith Colleges campus has teamed up with Transformed, a Christian club from Finger Lakes Community College, to bring the contemporary Christian band Isaiah Six to Geneva. The concert, with opening artist Andrea Genevieve, will begin at 7 p.m. on Friday, March 4, in Albright Auditorium on the Colleges campus. Part of the band's college tour, this concert is free and the community is invited to attend.

“They're really good,” said junior Gina Trask, a member of Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship from Phoenix, N.Y., who has seen them perform several times. “They have a large band with lots of instruments and singers, and they're very appealing to young people.”

Isaiah Six plays rock-style music using guitars, drums and keyboards. They recently released the album “Like A Freak.” Genevieve is a band member who has also released solo albums; her latest is titled “Glimpses.” Isaiah Six also has a worship and evangelistic ministry that aims to see local churches become epicenters for revival.

Members of the HWS Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship meet for a “mini-church” service of singing, Bible study and fellowship. Pastor Dale Andrews, of the Geneva Assembly of God, attends meetings regularly to lead the singing and share thoughts with the group. Each year the group attends the B.A.S.I.C. (Brothers And Sisters In Christ) conference in Syracuse, at which Isaiah Six performs annually. The conference is also where the group members met students from Finger Lakes Community College, which led to them co-sponsor the concert.

“The two campuses are so close,” says Trask, who hopes the concert will bring together young people from the schools and churches in the greater Geneva community. “I'd like to get to know more students in the area.”
