Europe Tour 2010

Choral Arts Ensemble

In the spring of 2010, members from the Chamber Choir, Women's Chorus, and Men's Chorus had the privilege to go on tour in Europe for three weeks. We were all so fortunate to have such an amazing group come along this year. It was most definitely be a sensational time for both the performers, as well as the audience members. We performed a wide range of variety of compositions. Everyone worked extremely hard to polish each composition and it lead to a series of successful concerts.
