"There's so much wonderful music in the world that no human being could live long enough to discover it."

That's what Linda Tedford, founder, artistic director and conductor of Susquehanna Chorale, had to say about why she remains enthused about quality choral music.

Tedford says making wonderful music is what Susquehanna Chorale is all about. The group is a nationally recognized midstate chorus that began a little more than three decades ago with a hand full of singers and the dream of its founder.

"I'm constantly working toward perfection," said Tedford. " I realize we can't reach perfection, but, by gum, we're going to try."

Tedford's past credits in the field of choral arts include some of the most coveted honors. But it's the group's future that keeps her focused on finding and recruiting top local singing talent, performing with first class musical talent and grooming the next generation of singers through youth-oriented choirs.

In just his second year with the chorus, Swatara Middle School music teacher and choir director, Todd Boden, says he's already sold on the sound.

"There are people who have been in the group since it started 31 years ago," he pointed out, "And I would sure love to be with the group 31 years."

Susquehanna Chorale serves as the Ensemble in Residence at Messiah College, and their concert on Saturday evening will be their first public concert in the school's state of the art perfomance center, Parmer Hall.

"This hall is designed for acoustics," said Tedford. "It is stunning. It is a work of art in itself."
