Watch and Listen: The Same Stream Choir Live from the WRTI 90.1 Performance Studio

They were once all singers at Westminster Choir College, where they sang under the direction of Dr. James Jordan. Their passion for singing together has continued beyond graduation, resulting in the creation of an independent, professional choral ensemble—The Same Stream.


Listen to the members of The Same Stream sing live from the WRTI Performance studio on Monday, August 6th at 12:10 pm conducted by Dr. Jordan. WRTI’s Susan Lewis is host.
