Lycoming College Tour Choir

Sunday, March 10 | Sanctuary
3:00 pm | FREE

The Lycoming College Tour Choir, based in Williamsport Pennsylvania, is an ensemble of approximately 30 students who are selected by audition to tour during spring break each year. This will be the inaugural year for the College’s new Director of Choral Activities, Dr. Patrick Chiu. The choir will be performing a powerful and intriguing program full of sacred and folk/traditional music with works from Rutter, Martin, Fauré, and more. The program will also feature collaboration from faculty members Dr. Amanda Gunderson, piano, and Jeff Johnson, organ. The choir previously performed at St. Jerome’s in 2017, and we are grateful that they are hosting us once again!

About the Lycoming College Tour Choir:

“Since its inception by Walter McIver in 1947, The Lycoming College Tour Choir has performed in prestigious venues throughout the United States and Europe, with additional excursions to China, Argentina, Canada, and Puerto Rico. The ensemble is open to all academic majors and is selected by competitive audition from the larger Lycoming College Choir. Yearly membership varies according to logistical and musical demands. In addition to traditional concerts, Tour Choir engages in outreach by collaborating with high school and community choruses, striving to generate a greater sense of community across all levels of music education. The choir’s repertoire is broad, incorporating sacred and secular music in many styles and from all musical eras. Tour Choir travels annually, with international travel every other year, offering students the potential for two global opportunities during their college experience.”
