Lafayette’s choir will present music and images from its recent European concert tour 8 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 30, at the Williams Center for the Arts.

The event is free and open to the public.

Nina Gilbert, director of choral activities, and Katherine Furlong, access services librarian, led a group of more than 30 students as they traveled to five of Europe’s grand capital cities — Vienna, Helsinki, Tallinn, Budapest, and Bratislava – for the course Choral Music: Window to Culture. The students rehearsed and performed in interactive concerts with local host choirs and conductors. Their concert tour was enhanced by cultural and historical studies, including talks by guest speakers on history, politics, architecture, religion, and language, in addition to specialized musical topics.

Choral Music: Window to Culture was one of seven study abroad classes that took place during Lafayette’s January interim session between regular semesters. Nearly 170 students took faculty-led courses in Africa, Asia, Europe, and South America.
