The Hope ensemble will travel through eight Western states. CBU students involved with Hope include Leah Alford (leader), Jamie Fischer, Linda Jacoban, Katie Kopitzke, Cameron DeCou, Matthew Kost, Jordan Smith and Ivan Utomo.


The Light performance group will travel across 16 eastern states. Performing with Light are Ben Halsne (leader), Evan Lo, Kelsey Doolittle, Shaylene Judson, Megan Lopez, Meghan Ostrosky and Jeyeon Kim.


Both ensembles left the CBU campus on June 5th for eight-week tours. Itineraries for the groups can be accessed on CBU’s website: view the Hope group’s itinerary at http://musicweb.calbaptist.edu/itin/Hope.pdf; the Light ensemble’s itinerary is at http://musicweb.calbaptist.edu/itin/Light.pdf.
