BYU Singers to present free pretour concert April 21

Come wish the Brigham Young University Singers “bon voyage” during a free pre-tour concert Saturday, April 21, at 6:30 p.m. in the de Jong Concert Hall.

The ensemble will leave the next week for a concert tour of England, with performances at Gloucester Cathedral, Bristol Cathedral, the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama and Oxford University's Sheldonian Theatre, among others.

Directed by Ron Staheli, the program will encompass a wide variety of musical styles, including “Pilgrims’ Hymn” by Stephen Paulus and “Northern Lights” by Ola Gheilo.   

As one of the major touring ensembles of the university, the Singers have traveled throughout the United States (including Hawaii), twice to Russia and three times to Israel, and have also toured Australia, New Zealand, Western and Eastern Europe (including the Baltic States), West Africa and South Africa.

The choir toured the British Isles in May 2009, placing second in the Fleischmann International Trophy Competition at the Cork International Choral Festival.
