Genevans to tour in Great Britain

The Genevans choir

The Genevans, the student choir of Geneva College, will travel to Great Britain on Thursday, May 13 to begin its European summer tour. Led by Director Robert Copeland, the 43 students will perform at locations in England, Scotland and Ireland, and return on June 1. The Genevans tour schedule is as follows:

May 15 – Strabane, N. Ireland
May 16 – Londonderry, N. Ireland
May 17 – Ballymena, N. Ireland
May 18 – Ballyclabber, N. Ireland
May 19 – Knockbracken (Belfast), N. Ireland

May 25 – Stirling Castle, Stirling, Scotland
May 26 – Durham Cathedral, Durham, England
May 27 – Leeds, England
May 29 – Henley on Thames, England
May 30 – All Soul’s Church, London, England

The Genevans are heir to a tradition of choral singing dating from the early years of the college over a century and a half ago. The mission of the choir expresses Geneva’s belief that music, as one of God’s finest gifts, meets a deep, universal need in people. The choir’s repertoire is broad and varied, reflecting the belief that “all of life, always and everywhere, is life in the presence of God.” The Genevans go on a tour throughout the United States every year and travel to Europe every fourth year.
