PLYMOUTH, N.H.-Longtime Plymouth State University music professor Dr. Daniel Perkins will present a program about a recent chorale tour to Vietnam Wednesday, Jan. 30 at 4 p.m. at the Silver Center for the Arts.

Perkins was recently awarded the prestigious Stevens-Bristow professorship for which the presentation fulfills a requirement. The honor is awarded to a tenured PSU faculty member who has a record of excellence in teaching, scholarly creativity and outstanding contributions to their university profession.

Eighteen Plymouth State University students spent two weeks with Perkins on the tour, “Singing for Friendship and Peace.” Perkins will present the program with the students about the educational aspects of their tour in Vietnam and collaborative concerts with Vietnamese university students. The presentation will include comments from four PSU alumni who are currently teaching in South Korea and Hong Kong, who joined the Chamber Singers in Hanoi during the tour. Perkins also serves as Principal Guest Conductor of the Vietnam National Opera and Ballet.

PSU alumni Wallace R. and Meredith Bristow Stevens, class of 1962, established the University’s first endowed professorship to celebrate and recognize tenured faculty who work in teacher preparation and this, “educate the educators.”

The program is open to the public free of charge in Smith Recital Hall. For information about the program, contact Dan Perkins at (603) 535-2367 or Dan Perkins
