    Raymond resident Georgia Noonan will be a junior this September at Plymouth State University where she is part of the college’s elite Chamber Singers. The group goes on an international tour every three years and were able to tour Chile for two weeks this past May. The students flew to Santiago and spent three days exploring the city. From there they took a bus to Viña Del Mar and Valpariso and spent three nights in host homes. In those cities the singers went to elementary schools to give concerts and workshops with the children.

    The trip then took them to Valdivia, which is in southern Chile. While visiting there they did workshops with students at the Universidad de Chile Valdivia and more elementary schools in the area. The final four nights were spent in Puerto Mont, which is very far south. The Universidad de Austral Puerto Mont paid for the group to stay in a nice bed and breakfast overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Georgia is looking forward to another trip overseas during her senior year at Plymouth.
