The Drake Choir and Chamber Choir will host a concert at 4 p.m. Wednesday, May 18, to kick off their tour to Latvia, Estonia, and Finland, which begins Thursday, May 19. Audience members are invited to an ice cream social, hosted by President Marty Martin, immediately following the performance. Both the concert and ice cream social are free and open to the public and will be held in Sheslow Auditorium of Drake’s Old Main, 2507 University Ave.
Drake Choir members have raised $370,000 through singing valentines, benefit concerts, a concert at President Martin’s house, and private fundraising methods to ensure all members of the choir can afford the tour. In total, 70 students will tour the Baltic countries from May 19 through June 1.
