SNU introduces new PR group, EXALT!

Southern Nazarene University announces the introduction of the new public relations group EXALT! (formerly known as Witness).

EXALT! is a mixed ensemble made up of six members who attend SNU as full-time students. EXALT! travels throughout four states 16 weekends a year (8 weekends each semester) representing SNU at churches, youth functions, camps, retreats, district assemblies, and other special events across the South Central region of the United States.

Known for its tight harmony, EXALT! performs a combination of praise and worship with keyboard and guitar accompaniment as well as special numbers.

“EXALT! goes out to share SNU,” said David Alexander, Vice President for University Advancement. “There is no stronger witness for what SNU is, than her students, their talent, their spirit, their commitment to serve, speak volumes about the university they represent.”

EXALT! is comprised of vocalists Sarah Cantley – a Senior from Tulsa, OK majoring in Vocal Performance; Betsy Baldwin – a Sophomore from Austin, TX majoring in Music Education with a minor in Spanish; Cassi Blackstock – a Junior from Haltom, TX majoring in Music Education; Jason Isaacs – a Junior from Tulsa, OK majoring in Church Music; Angie Mills – a Junior from Enid, OK majoring in Music Education; and Justin Mixon – a Sophomore from Dodson, TX majoring in Church Music.

Philip Miller, professor in the School of Music, serves as the vocal coach for the group. Miller teaches music theory at SNU, heads the new music technology lab, and directs the University Singers, Women’s Chorus, and Choral Society. Miller received his Bachelor of Music Education degree from Oklahoma Baptist University in 1994, a Master of Music in Choral Conducting from the University of Oklahoma in 1995, and is currently working to complete his Doctorate of Musical Arts from the University of Oklahoma.
