BETHLEHEM, PA., April 6, 2018: Today, Moravian College announced that on Tuesday, April 10 at 12:00 p.m. it will confer the honorary degree of Doctor of Humane Letters on Greg Funfgeld, Artistic Director & Conductor of The Bach Choir of Bethlehem at the Central Moravian Church in Bethlehem, Pa.  The honorary degree award ceremony for Mr. Funfgeld will take place during the April Bach at Noon concert, which is free and open to the public.

Any Liberty or Freedom senior can apply for the scholarship -- about 60 did this year -- and then high school guidance counselors work to whittle down the applicant pool. Roy and Alyson Remsing, assistant director of admissions for Moravian, then selected the winners from that smaller pool.
