Max Noah Singers prepare for their Spring Tour that takes them from Milledgeville to Staten Island with several stops in between.Max Noah Singers prepare for their Spring Tour that takes them from Milledgeville to Staten Island with several stops in between.Each spring the Max Noah Singers take their sounds on the road for a tour, which gives the students the opportunity to learn and share their talents beyond the classroom.

In the past, the college singers have traveled across Georgia and to neighboring states, even as far away as Washington, D.C., but this year they will head up the East Coast and land in New York for a few days.

For some of the Max Noah Singers, this will be their first time visiting the Big Apple.

"I was actually really surprised we decided to go to New York,” Hannah Harris, sophomore psychology major, said. “It seemed like a much further away trip than last year, and it's really exciting that we can travel there. I've never been in such a large and bustling city like that.”

The tour is a time for the group to come together, share its talent to a broader spectrum of people and for each member to grow musically, professionally and individually.

“I always look forward to the camaraderie with the rest of the group,” Bradley Sowell, junior music education major, said. “I also really look forward to the places we get to sing, because they are so different from what we are used to.”

The Max Noah Singers will start their adventure with a concert March 14 in Augusta, Ga., visit many cities in between and end the tour March 19 back in Milledgeville. The Max Noah Singers Spring 2014 Tour includes the concerts listed below:

  •  Woodlawn United Methodist Church in Augusta, Ga. March 14 at 7 p.m.
  •  Ginter Park Presbyterian Church in Richmond, Va. March 15 at 7 p.m.
  •  Calvary Presbyterian Church in Staten Island, N.Y. March 16 at 4 p.m.
  •  First Presbyterian Church in Roanoke Rapids, N.C. March 18 at 7 p.m.
  •  First Presbyterian Church in Milledgeville, Ga. March 19 at 7:30 p.m.

The audience at each performance can expect to hear a variety of musical compositions.

“This tour has a large repertoire, more songs than I believe we've tried to do before,” Harris said. “It's in two parts: classical and then pop culture. Something will be there for everyone to enjoy.”

Dr. Jennifer Flory, associate professor of music and director of choral activities, will conduct the show along with two special student directors Shelby Cloud and Devon Kitchens and one student coach, Mitchell Moore. Student conducted and coached pieces include “If Music Be the Food of Love” by David C. Dickau, “The Peace of God” by John Rutter and “I’m Yours” by Jason Mraz, arranged by Christopher Peterson.

Admission is free, but donations are encouraged to offset the tour costs.
