Every year Indiana Wesleyan University’s Chorale and Wind Ensemble each take an extended tour during the University’s Spring Semester. While both ministry groups spend several weekends every semester touring different parts of the Midwest, the Spring Break tour is a time when they travel across the nation. With past tours locations being Florida, California and New York, there is always great focus on the second semester to prepare for this week-long tour. “The students are the highlight of these groups. I am always amazed by the humility in Christ they exhibit while also demonstrating their exceptional talents,” says Krista Brown, who will be traveling with the group to Florida, this year.
The Chorale is spending their tour on the east coast going all the way down to Florida. They leave early Saturday morning, March 2nd, to arrive in time for their first concert at Brooksville Wesleyan Church, Brooksville Florida at 7:00 p.m. Traveling to their next show on Sunday, March 3rd, they spend the day at Harborside Christian Church, Safety Habor, FL, performing for multiple services including the 8:30 a.m., 10:00 a.m., 11:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
They continue the trip on Tuesday, March 5th performing at the Wycliffe Discovery Center at 11:30 a.m. and Avon Park Holiness Camp at 7:00 p.m. that evening. On Wednesday, March 6th, they will sing at The Village Church – Shell Point, Fort Myers, FL, at 7:00 p.m. On Thursday and Friday, the Chorale will be holding clinics and exhibits at Evangelical Christian School in Fort Myers, FL and Westminster Academy in Fort Lauderdale.
