For the first time in two years, the Susquehanna University Choir will embark on a spring break tour to the Philadelphia area.

Performances are free and open to the public:

  • Monday, March 21, 7 p.m., Council Rock North High School, Newtown, Pennsylvania.
  • Tuesday, March 22, 7 p.m., Council Rock South High School, Holland, Pennsylvania.
  • Wednesday, March 23, 7 p.m., Downingtown High School, Exton, Pennsylvania, where they will be hosted by Adam Speakman ’04.
  • Friday, March 25, 7 p.m., Conrad Weiser High School, Robesonia, Pennsylvania, where they will be hosted by Sara Weiser ’10 McGrory at the Pennsylvania Music Educators Association Region V Choral Festival.

The University Choir, under the direction of Amy Voorhees, director of choral activities and assistant professor of music, recently performed at the Eastern American Choral Directors Association conference in Boston. The choir was the only collegiate ensemble from Pennsylvania and one of only four ensembles selected from the state. The biennial conference draws choral directors from 11 states across the Northeast.

Susquehanna’s University Choir embarks on annual tours in Pennsylvania and throughout the eastern United States every spring. This year marks the first time the choir has had the opportunity to go on tour since its 2020 tour was cut short at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic.
