SHREVEPORT, LA — The Centenary College Choir takes its 2017-2018 program, “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness,” on the road in early November for six performances in south Louisiana. The group will visit and sing at several churches during the three-day tour.
The Choir debuted the full season program at its annual “Rhapsody in View” performance at Shreveport’s Riverview Theater during Centenary’s Homecoming weekend on October 21 and 22.
The tour opens with a concert at St. John’s United Methodist Church in Baton Rouge at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, November 2. That evening, the Choir travels to Hammond-Ponchatoula-Well United Methodist Church for a 7:00 p.m. concert. On Saturday, November 4, the group moves to Lafayette for a 6:00 p.m. appearance at St. Anthony Catholic Church. The tour wraps up on Sunday, November 5 as the Choir sings for morning services at Asbury United Methodist Church in Lafayette and then gives a final concert at First United Methodist Church in DeRidder at 6:00 p.m.
Established in 1941, the Choir is the oldest and largest ensemble at Centenary College and celebrated its 75th anniversary in 2016. The group sings a diverse repertoire of music from classical to casual, making an international tour every other year. Nicknamed “America’s Singing Ambassadors” by the press, the Choir has toured throughout the world, representing Centenary College to audiences in 32 countries on six continents.
