The Lycoming College Tour Choir will return from their spring break tour for a homecoming concert on Saturday, March 28 at 7 p.m. in Clarke Chapel. This event is free and open to the public.
This year, the Tour Choir traveled to Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania and throughout New York, including Oneonta, Saratoga Springs, Syracuse, Lake Placid, Rochester and more. This concert explores the balance between stark, ancient sounds and lush romanticism - between sea and sky.
The Tour Choir is an ensemble of about 40 students who are selected by audition each year. The Tour Choir begins rehearsals in January, and its annual tour schedule includes two weekend tours and a 10-day concert tour over spring break. Every three or four years, the Tour Choir conducts a two-week tour abroad in addition to its yearly activities. Like the other Lycoming choirs, members of the Tour Choir are students from every academic field and major. Members are chosen for their abilities to be cooperative and dedicated as much as for their musical talents.
Since the Lycoming Choir's inception in 1947, the choir has toured in many parts of the United States during its annual spring break tour. In the past fifteen years, the Tour Choir has visited New England, Chicago and the Midwest, Florida, Georgia, Texas, Louisiana, and North and South Carolina, and has flown to California four times. In addition, the Tour Choir has traveled abroad to Puerto Rico, Argentina, England, Spain, Germany, Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic.
