The Marietta College Concert Choir has been invited to perform at several prestigious venues in Great Britain and is seeking your support.
Hello Friends and Family!
I have been privileged to be a part of the wonderful Concert Choir for the past four years at Marietta College, and what an experience it has been.
Every year the Concert Choir tours in May, it is a wonderful opportunity to take our music and share it with others. My freshman year (2008-2009) we had an amazing tour up through the Northeast part of the United States. Since then we have toured around Ohio, out West toward Minnesota and back, as well as one South through Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia and Florida.
This coming summer, the choir has the wonderful opportunity to sing at several locations across Scotland and England. But as many of you know travel costs are not inexpensive. The cost is $4,200 per student, which adds up quick with a choir to almost $120,000!! Now no one likes to fundraise, but it’s amazing how a few contributions here and there can make a difference!
This trip to the United Kingdom is a special opportunity because it is a chance to share our gift of music once again, but this time with a different country. While languages can change the gift of music transcends those boundaries and can touch all who hear.
Please help make this trip possible for the 2012-2013 Marietta College Concert Choir!
There are a few ways you can help:
- Make a donation through this page
- Send as check made out to the Marietta College Concert Choir. (those can be sent to the Music Department 215 Fifth Street Marietta, Ohio 45750)
- The most fun option is to join us on tour and travel with us: http://music.marietta.edu/England/
There is no singing on your part, just the opportunity to travel with us, listen to at least four beautiful concerts, and at the same time help defer our costs.
Thank you so much for helping in any way you can!
