    The Ohio Northern National Tour Choir is on a 38-day concert tour to 26 states during May and June 2013. The choir consists of members of the ONU University Singers, the top choral ensemble at ONU, which tours annually.

    The concert will be in three sections and will open with a sacred segment. The second portion of the program will include music of Africa, Norway, Ireland, Japan and Brazil. This part of the program will feature several well-known spirituals. The final part of the concert will focus on American and contemporary offerings with music of George Gershwin, Stephen Foster and Eric Whitacre.

    Ohio Northern University’s quality, student-centered education distinctively combines nationally ranked sciences, arts and professional programs for more than 3,600 students in its five colleges: Arts & Sciences, Business Administration, Engineering, Pharmacy and Law.
