Sewanee Choir Tour: Choral Evensong

Sunday, March 17
Historic Church
6 p.m., Reception to follow

Selections for this performance include works by Leighton, Sumsion, Howells, Wood, Gardiner, Ireland, and Bainton.

The University Choir, directed by Dr. Geoffrey Harris Ward since the fall of 2016, consists of roughly 60 dedicated undergraduates who sing at weekly services in All Saints Chapel, monthly Evensongs, and a variety of recitals throughout the
program year. Choir membership is open to any student – no audition or previous experience is required, and the choir consists of a variety of students with different backgrounds and interests outside of their time in rehearsal.

As an active touring ensemble, the choir has performed extensively throughout the southeastern United States as well as Colorado, New York, and Canada. Since 1979, the choir has made more than ten tours of England, singing the service of
Choral Evensong in more than 20 cathedrals and abbey churches. The choir is excited to continue this tradition this March by performing throughout the South Central United States, with tour stops in Louisiana, Texas, Arkansas, and Tennessee.
