Performance Tour in Scotland

Sing with the Mystic Chorale in Scotland this Summer!

Under the Direction of Donnell Patterson
August 7-15, 2022

Messages from our leaders:

The repertoire will be from this spring’s season so all tour members must sing live with us. Some of the songs like Arise Arise and Glory Hallelujah were part of the spring 2020 season via Zoom. In addition Donnell will be teaching two Gospel songs that we will sing in the spring and then take to Scotland. There will be summer rehearsals during which Donnell may teach additional songs.

I am always excited to travel, but to have this new opportunity to travel with the Mystic Chorale to a place I’ve never been marks a high point amongst my musical journeys! While touring and performing domestically are contrasting experiences, I anticipate a good time, wonderful music making and unforgettable memories! Thank you to Nick, the Board and the Membership for this invitation and awesome opportunity.
