The 49-member ensemble will just have concluded their spring tour which included concerts in Lancaster, Louisville KY, St. Louis MO, Kirkwood MO, Evansville IN, Zanesville, and New Concord.

The concert will feature a variety of sacred and secular music including works by Brahms, Poulenc, Victoria, Clausen, and Lauridsen, spirituals, hymn arrangements and more.

Area singers include Raymond Cunningham, Shannon Cunningham, Coryden Enochs, Kelly Florian, Joe Hilgenberg, Karysa Kent, Tony Palmer, and Kameron Wise.  Four members of the choir are alumni of the Coshocton Youth Chorale and nine are alumni of the All-Ohio Youth Choir.

This local concert by the Muskingum Choir has become a Coshocton tradition and all are invited.  An offering will be received to help offset the choirs’ travel expenses.  For more information, contact the church at 622-0486.
