BBC Concert Chorale set to tour New England

Spring Break holds an exciting week of music ministry for members of the BBC Concert Chorale, with the group traveling through New England on a four-state tour.

More than a dozen performances are planned from March 9-18 for the 40-voice ensemble. The Concert Chorale will perform in churches and Christian schools, including many musical styles and their specialty of sacred music.

The Concert Chorale, under the direction of Dr. Larry Kauffman, will also be on the road the weekend of April 28-30 in New York state.

Throughout the year, students take the opportunity to sing and minister in churches around the country. The BBC Department of Music is involved in special on-campus performances during Christmas, conference weeks, chapel, and the Spring Music Festival.
