Alaska Adventures A Chance for PSAA to Share Talent and Take In the Beauty

Alaska Adventures A Chance for PSAA to Share Talent and Take In the Beauty Puget Sound Adventist Academy’s (PSAA) singing group, Impact, witnessed to hundreds of people in Alaska this summer. The 18-member group, directed by Estyn Goss, performed eight concerts in five days, including a performance at the Alaska Native Hospital and several retirement centers. “We could tell by the looks on the residents’ faces that they enjoyed our concert,” said junior Jeff Andersen who sang bass in the choir. Beyond music performances, the trip to Alaska also gave the choir members a chance to see Alaska and learn about Native American cultural history through a Native American center and a village replica tour. The students also took a glacier cruise and watched sea otters—a highlight for all of them, said Doug White, principal, who went along to drive the bus. The group visited four Adventist churches and one Lutheran church as well as several secular venues. White said the trip to Alaska gave the students a chance to share their talents and to see another part of the U.S.
