Women's Chorale tour of Pacific NorthwestCalvin Woman's Chorale, an honor choir founded and led by Dr. Pearl Shangkuan, will tour Oregon, Washington and British Columbia during the college's spring break, March 21-28, 2009.
The Calvin Woman's Chorale has already performed at festivals throughout Michigan and sings at the annual Fall Music Festival, the Festival of Lessons and Carols, and presents a full concert each spring. The chorale toured the East Coast in 2005 and, following that tour, the choir released its debut recording, Music Down in My Soul. In 2007, the chorale spent three weeks on an tour to South Korea, China and Southern California.
The Calvin College Republicans are proud to host a series of events featuring different speakers, focusing on domestic and international life issues, in DeVos Room 150, Tuesday through Thursday of this week.
The next installment of student treats to order for your student features popcorn! Your student can dive into a bag of popcorn to help get back into school after spring break. They'll also need some snacks (and maybe more to share?) to help with the last push until exams. The Popcorn Treat features three bags of deluxe, flavored popcorn—caramel, cheese, and butter—and includes a personal-sized bag of the fruity favorite "Monster Munch."
I am pleased to inform the Calvin community that I have offered the position of College Chaplain to Rev. Dr. Mary Hulst and she has graciously accepted the position, pending a successful PSC (Professional Status Committee) interview. We are grateful to God for her willingness to accept this call on her life and to continue to serve the Christian Reformed Church as the new College Chaplain.
