Ready... Set… Go! The Valparaiso University Chorale gears up for their 2019-2020 season on their annual retreat.

Beautiful as always, the Ancilla Domini Chapel provided a spectacular venue for the Chorale as they rehearsed their program and performed for the Sisters at the convent.
The newly-inducted members of the Chorale found their place in the ensemble, and they enjoyed the special opportunity to bond with their fellow members. From fun games to words of affirmation and lengthy rehearsals to warm, relaxing meals, the diverse itinerary left the ensemble with a new connection to one another and a determination to face their busy upcoming season.
