Choir tour of the US

17 Jan 2019
Tags: News,

The Lincoln Choir is excited to announce that their next tour will be to the East Coast of the United States.

The choir embark on annual tours abroad, as well as to Cathedrals around the UK. Tours are an essential part of the choir calendar and require months of preparation. It is wonderful to see the choir gel both musically and socially whilst on tour and, having pushed themselves to new levels of attainment and professionalism, the high standard of music is brought back to Chapel for the College's benefit. The rewards of the choir’s 2018 tour to Malta are still being reaped.

Looking ahead to the 2019 tour to New York and Boston, we anticipate that the choir will perform to College alumni in five concerts. They will also collaborate with The Cathedral of All Saints, Albany.

The choir thrives on the adrenaline of performing, and they stand to gain much from singing with new choirs and experiencing worship in a setting outside Oxford.

We would like to thank alumni and friends of the College who are making this tour possible by offering choir members places to stay and by contributing to the fundraising campaign.

A provisional tour schedule is as follows:

Wednesday 10 April – Greenwich, CT
Friday 12 April – Boston, MA
Saturday 13 – Sunday 14 April – Albany, NY
Tuesday 16 April – New York, NY

Venues will be confirmed in due course. Please let Jane Mitchell know if you would like to receive further details when they are announced.

The choir look forward to performing to alumni in the US soon.
