UNM Concert Choir to Give ‘Bon Voyage’ Concert Feb. 21

Group to Perform at ACDA Conference in Denver

The UNM Concert Choir, under the direction of Bradley Ellingboe, is singing at the American Choral Directors Association (ACDA) conference in Denver next month.

Before leaving, the choir is giving a "bon voyage" concert on Sunday, Feb. 21 at 2 p.m. at St. John’s United Methodist Church, 2626 Arizona NE. The event is free and open to the public; however donations to benefit the chorus will be accepted.

“We are proud to represent New Mexico at the convention. To be chosen to sing at it is a high honor. Before leaving, we wanted the opportunity to share the music with the people at home who have supported UNM Chorus and helped send us there,” Ellingboe said.

The group departs on Tuesday, Feb. 23 and will perform in Farmington. On Thursday, Feb. 25, they will perform at the conference.
“On Thursday evening, we're giving a concert at a large church in Denver, to be followed by a reception hosted by the UNM Alumni Chapter in Denver,” Ellingboe said.
