UJ Choir Concert set at basilica

The University of Jamestown Concert Choir will perform a concert of sacred choral music at St. James Basilica at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 17.

The concert is free and open to the public; however, to help offset the costs of touring, a freewill offering will be collected at intermission. Attendees are invited to enjoy inspirational singing and visit with choir members after the performance.

Jamestown is the choir's final stop on a nine-city, one-week tour. Other performance locations include: in North Dakota, Valley City, Bismarck, Harvey, Wahpeton and Fargo; in Minnesota, Crookston, Maple Grove and Willmar.

The University of Jamestown Choir, under the direction of Dr. J. Aaron McDermid, makes annual concert tours throughout the United States and travels abroad every four years. For more than 80 years, the choir has toured domestically and internationally, visiting 38 U.S. states, the District of Columbia, 18 European countries, China and three Canadian provinces. Choir members are chosen by audition and represent most academic majors on campus.
