My Utmost for His Highest at Bluefield College

Five Bluefield College choirs, featuring more than 65 voices, along with
a small orchestra will present a moving, classic worship musical, “My Utmost
for His Highest,” Saturday and Sunday, March 20 and 21 at 7 p.m. each night
in the Harman Chapel and Performing Arts Center.

In an inspiring presentation of the musical based on the devotional book
by Oswald Chambers, musicians and voices from the community and the BC
family will unite for what many are saying is a stirring worship experience.

Featuring arrangements of contemporary Christian artists and traditional
hymns, this musical, according to Bryant Moxley, director of the BC
performance, “calls all believers to follow Christ with total commitment.”

The performance also features visuals and a small orchestra.
The 65-voice chorus presenting “My Utmost for His Highest” will consist
of five Bluefield College music ensembles, including voices from both BC and
the community. Among the five groups will be BC’s Masterworks Chorale,
Praise Singers, Bluefield Singers, Variations, and a children’s choir.

The Masterworks Chorale is a unique music ensemble that combines
Bluefield College students, faculty and staff with musicians and singers
from the community. BC’s Praise Singers, one of the newest additions to the
BC Department of Music, is a small group of select students who sing
contemporary Christian praise and worship selections. The BC chamber choir,
Variations, is an auditioned voice ensemble from the college representing a
cross-section of the student body, which specializes in performing many
styles of music. Bluefield Singers is one of the largest choirs at BC, open
to all students and representing all disciplines at the school.

The musical “My Utmost for His Highest” was created by Oswald Chambers,
the same composer/arranger who later produced “Experiencing God,” which the
college presented on campus two years ago.

“This is a very powerful performance because of its clear message and
compelling music,” said Moxley, chair of BC’s Department of Music, about the
upcoming production. “It is my prayer that “My Utmost for His Highest” will
be a significant step in our journey to be a Christ-centered campus and a
catalyst for authentic spiritual growth in individual lives and in our

Moxley added that the more than 65 musicians preparing for the
production of “My Utmost for His Highest” had been blessed by “the timeless
devotional writing of Oswald Chambers,” and that his hope now was that the
BC family and the community would come out and experience “the exciting and
beautiful music of this work.”

The BC worship musical is open and free to the public. Performance time
is 7 p.m. Doors open as early as 6:30 p.m. for those who wish to arrive
early to ensure admission.
