Concert Tour of Ireland, Day 7: Back to Battle Creek

Today marks the seventh and final day of the Kellogg Community College Choral Union’s Concert Tour of Ireland. Thirty-one individuals left for the country on July 4 as part of the tour’s entourage, including 21 members of the Choral Union.

Here is the group’s itinerary for the day as provided by Gerald Blanchard, professor of vocal music at KCC and director of the college ensembles whose members make up the Choral Union, before the group departed:


“At 9 a.m. our host families will drop us off at the Presbyterian Church, where we’ll say goodbye our new friends. Our bus will meet us here for the short transfer to Dublin Airport. Here we’ll check in for our return flight to Chicago. We are certain that your musical adventure in Ireland has been richly rewarding ~ and lots of fun!”
