Annual Spring Break Chorale Tour Slated for March 19-27
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.

Reed Music Room
Miss Dorothy Reed attended Kansas City Bible College in 1947. Now in the presence of the Lord (read obituary here), she leaves a legacy to Calvary through the Reed Music Room. The room is being dedicated to her memory this month in the East Education Hall at Calvary University.
Her friends report that Dorothy was not one to call attention to herself, but had a wonderful life of service and accomplishment. She was a charter member of Village Bible Church in Salina, Kansas, and sang in the Bethany Messiah Oratorio Society for 45 years. Friends reported her beautiful voice was broadcast many times on a radio program and even at Carnegie Hall.
Naming a music room after her is a fitting tribute to her memory. Dorothy donated blood to the Red Cross and volunteered at the Salina Senior Center until she moved to Plainville, KS. Dorothy is survived by her lifelong friend, Elsie Richmond of Plainville, KS, and many nieces and nephews.
Anyone wishing to participate in CU’s memorial program should contact the Advancement Department for details.

Kristin Thurlby played her oboe as a guest artist, and several students played instrumental pieces as well. A few students performed solos, and lux voces, the new traveling music team, was also part of the program. The Chorale sang Candle Light Carol, Gesu Bambino, and Joy to the World. The Calvary Chamber Singers performed three songs on their own and then joined the Chorale and audience to close the concert with Christmas carols.
