Virginia Glee Club from UVa on tour next week
Date: March 7, 2013
Location: Virginia, USA
Choir type: College and University Choirs
I'll be taking the Virginia Glee Club, the University of Virginia's 142-year-old men's chorus, on our annual spring break tour starting this weekend. We'll be traveling from Massachusetts to Illinois, so if you live near any of our concerts, come join us for an evening of men's choral music. Our tour program (see below), performed without intermission, will last about an hour. It would be great to see some ChoralNet friends along the way!
Join The Virginia Glee Club as we spend spring break raising our voices in song in Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan and Illinois. No tickets are required (unless noted), though a free will offering will be taken in most locations. Come join us!
