Auburn Academy's Sylvan Chorale Tours Alaska

July 01, 2006 | Bobbie Grimstad

The 31 members of the Sylvan Chorale from Auburn Adventist Academy toured Alaska for a week in mid-April 2006, singing at churches and schools from the Matsu Valley to the Kenai. Led by director John Neumann, the group performed 11 sacred concerts, visited five schools and stopped to sing at the Pioneer Home in Palmer. During the course of the visit, the flu slowly worked its way through the ranks of singers. In spite of depleted numbers, the Sylvan Chorale inspired their audiences with their music, energy and spiritual focus.
