PSU Chamber Singers Perform for Governor and Executive Council (with video)

February 7th, 2013 by blyndes

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.

With the N.H. Executive Council and Governor Maggie Hassan looking on, PSU's Chamber Singers perform at the Statehouse in Concord Feb. 6.

The 25 members of the PSU Chamber Singers are university students majoring primarily in voice performance/pedagogy, music education, theatre, and music theatre. The Chamber Singers have performed to critical acclaim throughout the United States, Canada, England, South Africa, Vietnam, and Italy. The Chamber Singers recently performed at the Arkansas State Capitol on Martin Luther King Day as guests of the NAACAP.

In the spring of 2014, the Singers will study and perform in Chile. This coming May, they will collaborate with the New Hampshire Master Chorale and Orchestra in performances of Bach’s Mass in B minor.  For more information, visit nhmasterchorale.org or danrperkins.com
