Musical groups to perform in early April

Two Shippensburg University musical groups will present free performances in early April.

The Women’s Chorale and String Ensemble Concert is at 5:30 p.m. April 5 in Old Main Chapel. 

The Women's Chorale is an all women’s chamber chorus that tours each spring and performs classical concerts on campus. The ensemble has performed throughout the United States, England, Taiwan, Spain and France. The chorale has performed at the White House and The National Cathedral in Washington, D.C., and at Westminster Abbey in London.

The Shippensburg University Band will present its Spring Band Concert at 3 p.m. April 6 in the H. Ric Luhrs Performing Arts Center.

The band, directed by Trever R. Famulare, chair of the music and theatre arts department and director of bands, is comprised of non-music majors dedicated to the performance of exemplary traditional and contemporary wind band literature. They frequently represent the university with performances on campus and during extensive concert tours each spring. 

For information on either program please call the department at 477-1638.
