Chamber Singers visit Brazil

The Providence Chamber Singers are currently on their service and performance tour to Brazil.  They left on April 29 and will be returning May 14, 2014.

The Chamber Singers tour centers around the Retreat Centre owned and operated by Karl and Kim Enns in Fortaleza, Brazil. During this opportunity, the choir is performing in a variety of church venues, share personal faith experiences and stories with local youth, and share their musical talents through various service opportunities. Sharing the gift of music through cross-cultural exchanges such as this seeks to broaden the world view of our students, and gives them an opportunity to be a witness for Christ in a culture other than their own.

The Chamber Singers include:

Conductor Pianist
Dr. David Sawatzky Dr. Darryl Friesen
Soprano Alto
Stephanie Camella
Hannah Franz
Margaret Johnson
Janelle Hoekstra
Montanna Coad
Karly Eidse
Carolee Hamman
Sarah Lageer
Tenor Bass
Vaughn Frederick
Brendan Klippenstein
Jon Siemens
Hidetaka Yoshida
Harley Dyck
Ben Kroeker
Stephan Peters
Niklaas Schalm
