TACOMA, WASH. (March 24, 2015)-The Pacific Lutheran University Chorale’s 2015 spring tour, April 15-18, will include a performance in Longview, Washington and four performances in Oregon.

The Chorale tours annually and has performed recently for conferences of the Washington Music Educators Association and American Choral Directors Association. The mixed choir is comprised primarily—though not exclusively—of freshmen and sophomore singers representing a variety of academic disciplines.

The tour will be a homecoming for PLU’s new Chair of the Department of Music, Dr. John Paul, who will accompany the Chorale on the violin during their performance of his original composition How I Came to Be. Previous to PLU, Dr. Paul served as the Music Department chair of Marylhurst University for 13 years.

Conducted by PLU Visiting Instructor of Music Lauren Whitham, the concert program will offer music spanning several centuries and genres, including works by Felix Mendelssohn, Claudio Monteverdi and Eric Whitacre.
