Thirty-seven members of the Muskingum University Concert Choir studied and performed in England and Scotland from May 12-20, 2018, under the direction of Associate Professor of Music Dr. Zebulon Highben.
The tour began with two worship performances in London, including one at historic St. Paul’s Cathedral. Three concert performances followed, in Newcastle Upon Tyne, Edinburgh, and Glasgow.
The Glasgow performance was a collaborative effort with the University of Glasgow Chapel Choir, which featured each choir separately before concluding with a set of jointly-performed works.
Students also completed two Maymester courses during the trip: “British Choral Music,” taught by Dr. Highben, and “The Protestant Reformation in England and Scotland,” the last class taught by Professor of Religion and Associate Provost Rev. Dr. Rick Nutt before his retirement from the University.
President Susan S. Hasseler accompanied the group on this year’s tour.
