Spring Break on Choir Tour

As a member of the Muskingum University Concert Choir, I’ve gotten to go on a trip every year during spring break: Choir Tour! We leave the Thursday before break and get back on Tuesday, so we still have a little time to go home and relax after our week of traveling and singing. Over the years I’ve gotten to go to Nashville, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, and this year, North Carolina.

I love tour! It is extremely rewarding to be able to share music with so many people over such a short time. During the day, we’ll stop at schools and do little assemblies for students. In the evenings, we usually have our own concerts hosted by various churches. They feed us (some of the most delicious food!) and then serve as our host families as well: we get split up and sent home with church members for the night. I’ve met some of the kindest and most interesting people through my homestays.

We also get some free time in whichever large city was our trip destination. This year it was Durham, NC, but we also got some time in Asheville. In both cities we wandered around, visited shops and restaurants, and enjoyed the warm weather! I had some novelty cupcakes, delicious chocolate, and one of the best burgers of my life!

I have been very blessed with the friends I’ve gotten close to and spent my breaks with due to choir. I have four years of wonderful trips, great memories, and amazing music to cherish. Now back to classes and homework!
