Performance groups preparing for annual tour
Instead of a relaxing time at home, some Baptist Bible College students will be hitting the road during spring break.
Members of BBC's two vocal performance groups use the time each year as a special opportunity to sing and minister in churches around the country. Members make a unique sacrifice by giving up their personal time over the break to participate in the tours.
This year, members of Concert Chorale, under the direction of Dr. Larry Kauffman , and Chamber Singers, under the direction of Dr. David Harris, will travel to churches in 10 different states.
The 36-member Concert Chorale will travel March 13- 23 through Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Virginia, New Jersey, and Maryland. One day of the tour is set aside for a visit to Baltimore's Inner Harbor.
The Chamber Singers will tour in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Illinois, Iowa, Indiana, and Ohio. The 16 members will be on the road March 13-22 and will enjoy a day off in Chicago.
