Plymouth, N.H.-New Hampshire’s Executive Council and Governor Maggie Hassan were all smiles Wednesday, February 6 as they listened to the soaring harmonies of the Plymouth State University Chamber Singers. The students journeyed to Concord after the Governor’s office invited them to perform. Longtime First District Councilor Ray Burton, a Plymouth State graduate, introduced the group and they offered flawless a capella renditions of  For What it’s Worth, Daniel, Servant of the Lord and The Storm is Passing Over. Chamber Singers Director Dan Perkins was thrilled with the performance.

“The students sang beautifully and passionately as wonderful ambassadors for PSU and the University System of New Hampshire,” Perkins said.
