What does Garrison Keillor, host of the A Prairie Home Companion NPR radio show think about Goshen? He loves it.
In an interview with the Indianapolis Star recently at the Indiana State Fair, Keillor praised the city as his favorite place to host his show out of the many places he has visited.
The Star asked him, “You’ve staged A Prairie Home Companion all over the world. What has been your favorite place to host?”
Keillor: “Believe it or not, Goshen College in Indiana. They had a student choir on stage and an audience made mostly of Mennonites, so they sang like angels. You just hummed a note and gave them the downbeat, and they sang in perfect four-part harmony. We did hymn after hymn on that show, and it was very moving.”
Keillor taped his show at Goshen College on May 2.
