Local performers take part in U-Mary tour

Several local students at the University of Mary took part in a 2012 Fall Music Tour with the university’s Concert Band, Concert Choir and Vocal Jazz Ensemble.

The music groups presented free concerts to several high schools throughout North Dakota and Minnesota in late October and early November. Members of the band included Jordan Boehm and Dylan Boyd, both of Mandan, and members of the choir included Amber Olson and Jordan Boehm, both of Mandan, and Karen Schaaf, of Glen Ullin.

Tour participants also performed and work with students at each of the schools.

“The tour gives us an opportunity to reach out elsewhere in the region to high schools where interest and excitement about the University of Mary is building and to demonstrate the high quality of our student ensembles and music faculty,” says U-Mary Music Department Chair and Choir Director Dr. Tom Porter.
