Concert Choir releases tour schedule

The Tabor College Concert Choir is headed west for its 2023 tour.

This year’s concerts will take place in Arizona, California, and Colorado, spending nearly two weeks on the road. The Chamber Voices, Brass Ensemble, and For His Glory, Tabor’s Contemporary Christian music team, will join the choir on tour.

“We don’t take for granted the extraordinary effort and support it takes to mount a tour both from the Tabor side and from those who offer to host a concert,” said Dr. Greg Zielke, Tabor arts director, and choral director. “It remains one of the most exciting ways to get students where people can observe firsthand what is happening at Tabor, enjoy the wonderful music our students present, and experience how God is using Tabor for His kingdom purposes. Many years of Tabor choir tours and produced a book full of memories. We want this to be something our current students can also experience.”

The tour theme, “Light,” is built on John 8:12, celebrating its presence in God’s creation.

“It is so amazing that Jesus then uses this beautiful, life-sustaining miracle to explain who He is,” Zielke said. “Our music selections explore some of these aspects, both from the aspect of light in the creation and as Jesus the light of the world.”
