Michael W. Smith in Concert – 27 years later!

You could call it a reunion – of sorts. Michael W. Smith came to Marion, Indiana in the Spring of 1987. Invited by then Marion College Student Government Association, this concert was too big for the campus. “We held the concert at the old Memorial Coliseum, what is now the Star Financial YMCA” says Rick Carder, current IWU Alumni Director. It was under his student leadership with the Student Activity Council that he came to town.

This year’s Homecoming on October 4 will feature Smith in concert along with IWU’s Chorale. “I think that this year’s experience would completely blow him away at how much we (IWU) have changed in 27 years. The concert venue now is a 3,800 seat Chapel-Auditorium” says Carder.

Michael W Smith has always had a gift for delivering songs that capture the hearts of the listener and give voice to their thoughts and feelings. During his three-decade career, the Kenova, West Virginia native has shaped the Christian music landscape with such songs as “Friends,” which was named the No. 1 Song of All Time by CCM Magazine and “Healing Rain,” a powerful anthem that remains one of the best-loved songs in his extensive repertoire.

  1. Really wish I could be there!!! 87 was my Senior year & his concert blew me away. Unfortunately I have to be in Miami, FL that weekend at work meetings. I will be there in spirit!

  2. We are going to hear a mature Michael W Smith with his glorious songs in Praise to The Lord. His music touches all who hear it. I am looking forward to his concert!

  3. I remember when Dr. and Teresa viisted Washington, DC, having dinner with several of us IWU grads who live in the area. I will always cherish that wonderful meal together at Union Station. Thank you, Dr. Smith, for your stalwart leadership and ever-exhuberant faith that made IWU the amazing institution that it is. Take charge, Dr. Smith and Teresa!
