THIEL CHOIR ANNOUNCES SPRING 2012 TOUR DATES
April 9, 2012
GREENVILLE, PA –The Thiel Choir is hitting the road for a 20-day tour across the northern United States in May.
Under the direction of Dr. Michael Bray, director of choral activities, the student choir performs a largely a cappella program in Lutheran churches throughout the eastern United States every year and tours internationally every four years. This year’s “international” tour is across the United States, allowing the choir members to explore their own country, as many haven’t been further west than Ohio.
This year, the choir will perform works by Palestrina, Hovland, Lauridsen, Ijames, Madiera, Tate, Raminsh and Lutheran composers F. Melius Christiansen and Robert Wetzler, as well as arrangements of spirituals by Howard Helvey, Moses Hogan and Paul Weber. The program will include sacred works that celebrate hope, love and works of the Native American culture and earth consciousness.
All concerts begin at 7 p.m. There is no charge for admission, but a freewill offering will be taken.
Tour dates and locations are:
