We are excited to present the ETSU Chorale under the direction of Dr. Matthew Potterton again this year at service Sunday, September 23rd. Dr. Potterton will be asking for a free will offering to assist in fundraising efforts. Please see this short explanation from Dr. Potterton:
The ETSU Chorale is raising money to participate in one of the world’s oldest choir competitions in Llangollen Wales. We will compete against choirs from all over the world hoping to bring back top prizes. The cost is going to be about $2700 a student and we are fundraising to help get everyone to go. Trips like these are life changing. As a college student, my choir participated in this competition and I remember socializing with choirs from all over the world. One that we really befriended was from Iran. At the time, our government’s relations with Iran were even worse than they are now. But no one from our group or their group cared about that. We sang together and socialized together in peace. I can’t wait to give my students this experience.
