The Virginia Wesleyan Chorale, under the direction of Assistant Professor of Music  Bryson Mortensen, departs on Sunday, March 19, for their spring tour which includes performances in Virginia, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Pennsylvania. They will stop to share their talents in the cities of Annandale, Virginia; Keene, New Hampshire; Boston, Massachusetts; Concord, Massachusetts; Hershey, Pennsylvania; and Haymarket, Virginia. The Chorale will also hold clinics with high school choirs and collaborate with Keene State College, Concord-Carlisle High School, and Lower-Dauphin High School to perform concerts.

“This is an exceptional opportunity for our fine Chorale to showcase their talent and represent Virginia Wesleyan to new audiences,” said VWC President Scott D. Miller. “ As our funding campaign continues for the new Susan S. Goode Fine and Performing Arts Center and we build on the tradition of the arts and humanities here on campus and in our community, we express our gratitude to Dr. Mortensen and his students for taking their spring break to enrich the musical experiences of others.”
