Through a generous gift of the Stutzman Foundation, the SCSU choir will travel to Greece in December 2015.
During the past six years, the Southern Connecticut State University Choir has traveled to Ireland, England, and Spain thanks to the vision and spirit of Walter Stutzman and generous gifts from the Stutzman Foundation. The choir, led by director Terese Gemme, has grown tremendously during this time, often performing stunning concerts to packed audiences. The choir has worked with internationally-known guest conductors such as Simon Carrington and Craig Hella Johnson. Last year’s concerts in Barcelona were filled to capacity, and the performances were exquisite.
The choir is thrilled that the Stutzman Foundation has committed to funding a trip from December 27, 2015, through January 4, 2016, to Athens, Greece, where the choir will again work with Simon Carrington. In addition to a busy rehearsal and concert schedule, the choir will travel to the islands of Hydra and Aegina, Delphi, and Corinth. This exciting trip will once again enhance the students’ musical education and global awareness, while providing them with a life-changing experience.
