The Calvary University Chorale will be traveling over Spring Break in March for their annual Chorale Tour. They will leave Calvary on Monday, March 18 and return on Wednesday, March 27, 2019. The Chorale consists of 20 members under the direction of Jeremy Schell on tour. Dr. Haekyung An also directs Chorale classes at CU to prepare the students for tour. This year they will travel west to Colorado to perform in a variety of venues, including Churches, Christian schools and a concert in the park. Along with sharing what Calvary has to offer to upcoming students, our purpose of this year’s tour, is to inform those in the local area about Calvary University’s Innovation Center in Fort Morgan, Colorado. The Chorale will be singing at the Bandstand in the Park in Fort Morgan for the community to come and hear the wonderful music and testimonies and to get a taste of what the Innovation Center has to offer. We are grateful for all the Churches and families that are willing to host our students each year for their tour and look forward to hearing how God moves in the lives of our students and those they minister to along the way.
See the tour schedule below and if you live or are visiting the area stop in and hear the Chorale perform.

Calvary University invites you to enjoy the beautiful Christmas Story of ‘Amahl and the Night Visitors’ composed by Gian Carlo Menotti and conducted by Sarah Bourdess, in her Master’s Recital.
Amahl, a boy known for his tall tales and the occasional lie, gets around on a crutch due to his disability. As he sits outside playing his shepherd’s pipe, his mother calls for him to come inside. Amahl is slow to react to his mother’s commands. Finally, after several attempts to get him inside, he walks into the house. Amahl tells his mom a grand story of a giant star rising high in the sky above their house. Of course, she doesn’t believe him and tells him to stop bothering her.
Come hear the rest of the story, in this one act opera, conducted by Sarah Bourdess as she performs her Master’s Conducting Recital on Thursday, December 13, 2018 at 7:30 pm in Liberty Chapel on the Calvary Campus.
