University Choir members and Steven Hankle in Kenya

In December 2017, Penn State professor Steven Hankle and four University Choir students traveled to Kenya to participate in the Avoice4Peace tour. Representatives from three American choirs (Penn State, Florida State, and Texas Tech) and the Nairobi Chamber Chorus participated in the tour, where they sang in different venues in and around Nairobi, Kenya. The purpose of the tour was to build bridges between the two countries through choral music. The American choir members also learned and experienced choral music in interactive sessions presented by Muyale Joseph Inzai, artistic director of the Kenyan Boy's and Girl's choirs, and Sylvester Otieno, the artistic director of the Blend Ensemble of Kenya.
